Mine is due this month. I always try to get to the place before 8. Checked lights and wipers before I left. Noticed I needed a new wiper on passenger side. OK, WalMart is a block from the place I use. Replace the wiper and head to the inspection place. There are 3 vehicles in front of me. Almost blew it off but decided to wait. After 15 minutes the line moves and dude walks up to the truck. He says they don't have any one to do it and it will be at least a month before they do. I started to tell him it that is the case then quit sending postcards. So I head back to WalMart to get some other stuff and I remember another place. It is near Rockwall high school and traffic sucks. I pull in there and their machine is not working. Now I have to fight the high school traffic to get out of there. The state just needs to do away with inspections.

it's silly to still require inspections.

They should be done at insurance offices, might help with minimum coverage enforcement.

The tire place I use has now started requiring reservations for vehicle inspections. The owner says he doesn't have enough employees to stop in the middle of putting on a set of tires or doing rotation/balance or front end alignment to have someone inspect a car for $7.00.

My 3 vehicles all come 3 months in a row. Kwik Lube in Brownwood is quick if no oil change is needed-and since no emission test!

Inspections need to go away. Pretty much useless. If the state needs the revenue, just add it to the registration but do not require the ridiculous wait to get a meaningless inspection.

I hear ya. It’s even a beating here in Smith County. On son’s truck he did not get it inspected. I went on line and registered it. They sent me an email telling me it needed to be inspected. About a week later the tag came in the mail. No inspection.

You have to love the efficiency and thoroughness of “gubberment” at work.

Inspection is about to cost my sister $5500 in Austin. Can’t pass emissions test in her jeep unless she replaces her catalytic converter.

State Inspection in a non emissions county is $7... I know its just a dollar, but someone is charging extra!
