Texas state inspection

Hello from Deep South Texas,

Where do you go to get a TT inspected?
I just learned you can't renew your registration without an inspection.

Thanks

Call any of the local auto inspectors and see if they do it. I take mine to a U-Haul/junk yard to get mine done. I have used 2 different ones and they check all lights and turn signals. Neither have checked brakes. They will require you to provide current insurance papers. Can't remember if they require registration but probably do.

You can also get an inspection at any Rv dealership because they must inspect all Rv's they sell.

They will print out an inspection report and you take it to the auto license department in your county and you are issued a new sticker for your current plate. I would take registration and proof of insurance just in case.

The inspection station works the same way as your auto inspection does. Sorry if my registration and insurance documents for the motor vehicle office is sketchy because mine is due soon and last year was the first year of the new law. Prior to that inspections were required but documentation not required to get the sticker and I, along with many, never got theirs inspected.

Texas State Registration

Hi All,
In my last post I was looking for places that did state trailer inspections for tag renewal purpose. I learned that you don't have to get an inspection if your trailer has a gross limit of 4500 lbs or less. my Micro Lite has a gross weight of 4000 lbs, so no state inspection needed to renew my tags. as of today we are Legal Beagle once again and ready for the road.

Thanks for all of your help I hope this information is helpful.

Thanks for the update. Too often we do not hear of solutions. I knew the weight limit before needing inspection but did not think about it.

Texas inspection

Used to never worry about it but now it is a must do to license. Got mine done at Jiffy-Lube. Texas finally found a way to insure they get your money on trailer inspections.

This is what I did in Texas: I went online to renew without inspection because I didn't want to hookup and take my fiver to an inspection station. There is a place were you can check that you will be out of state at renewal time and it will let you renew and they send the sticker to you. When I am ready to use my fiver, I will hookup and go to an inspection station on my way. The Escapees RV Club worked hard on this issue because many of the member are full-time RVers who don't get back to Texas often and the new one sticker was going to be a burden. You have to get your RV inspected when you do get back to Texas. Good Luck

Got mine inspected today. They checked lights, tires and brakes. He had me pull the pin on the break away switch to see if the wheels would lock when trying to move the trailer with the truck. Good for another year.

Glad I live in a civilized state! LOL

One time license for all trailers, including camping trailers of every size. Never ever again have to renew it. Period.

Inspection fee isn't bad, only $7.00 They get you on the yearly registration renewal, $70.00 for my rv.
