Getting Your State Inspection
Official Inspection Station wants to help you pass your State of Texas Vehicle Safety Inspection. Our inspections are a quick, convenient, and simple process. In order to make your Vehicle Safety Inspection experience as advantageous as possible, we created a checklist for you to review. Reading through it carefully will prepare you for the inspection process. Although it doesn’t guarantee you’ll pass your Vehicle Safety Inspection, it will increase your chances.
What to bring
Proof of liability insurance: any current state insurance is acceptable.
Payment: Official Inspection Station accepts cash, check and credit cards (Visa & Master Card and Apple Pay). Texas state law requires that payment is made whether your vehicle passes or fails inspection.
Photo ID: this must be current and valid. If you are registering your vehicle in the state of Texas, you will need a photo ID in order to acquire your VI-30.
