ALL ABOUT US

 

HOW MUCH SHOULD A BRAKE AND LAMP-LIGHT INSPECTION COST?

USUALLY SOMEWHERE BETWEEN $65-$155 PLUS THE 2 PAPER CERTIFICATES, WHICH ADDS $7 MORE

CALIFORNIA DOES NOT SET THE COST OF AN INSPECTION, THE INDIVIDUAL STATIONS SET THEIR OWN INSPECTION FEES

THERE IS NO UNIVERSALLY LEGALLY SET COST FOR A BRAKE-LAMP-LIGHT INSPECTION IN CALIFORNIA

WILL THE COST I PAY HAVE ANY EFFECT WHETHER MY VEHICLE PASSES OR FAILS THE INSPECTION?

THAT DEPENDS. IT’S POSSIBLE THAT A BRAKE AND LAMP INSPECTION STATION THAT CHARGES LESS FOR THE INSPECTION MAY WANT TO SELL MORE REPAIRS. IT’S ALSO POSSIBLE THEY SIMPLY WANT TO PERFORM MORE INSPECTIONS

HOW LONG WILL A BRAKE AND LAMP INSPECTION TAKE TO PERFORM?

IF PERFORMED COMPLETELY, WE’VE BEEN TOLD BY STATIONS THAT THE INSPECTION WILL TAKE MORE THAN AN HOUR BUT FREQUENTLY LESS THAN 3 HOURS TO COMPLETE. IF THE SHOP HAS ONLY ONE TECHNICIAN QUALIFIED TO PERFORM THE INSPECTIONS, AND THAT TECHNICIAN PERFORMS OTHER FUNCTIONS WITHIN THE SHOP, THE INSPECTION MAY TAKE LONGER TO COMPLETE

WHAT SHOULD I DO PRIOR TO DROPPING MY CAR OFF FOR AN OFFICIAL BRAKE AND LAMP INSPECTION?

EITHER YOU ALONE OR YOU AND YOUR REGULAR MECHANIC SHOULD CONDUCT AN INITIAL INSPECTION OF ALL THE LIGHTING COMPONENTS OF YOUR VEHICLE BOTH OUTSIDE AND INSIDE. ALL LIGHTING INCLUDING WARNING LAMPS MUST BE IN WORKING ORDER. REPLACE ANY LIGHTS THAT ARE NOT WORKING AND REPAIR ANY SYSTEMS THAT ARE FORCING A WARNING LIGHT TO ILLUMINATE

WILL MY VEHICLE FAIL IF A HEADLIGHT BULB IS NOT WORKING?

YES, IN MOST CASES.  SEE THIS ARTICLE FOR DETAILS

WILL MY VEHICLE FAIL IF A LENS IS CRACKED?

YES IT MAY, ESPECIALLY IF IT EMITS LIGHT FROM THE BULB. BEST TO REPLACE IT BEFORE YOU GO FOR THE INSPECTION

WILL MY VEHICLE FAIL THE LIGHT TEST IF MY HEADLIGHT LENS IS CLOUDY?

VERY POSSIBLE. TRY TO POLISH THEM FIRST

WILL MY VEHICLE FAIL IF THE BRAKE PADS OR SHOES ARE TOO THIN?

YES, THEY WILL BE MEASURED AND COMPARED TO MANUFACTURER SPECS

WILL THE BRAKE ROTORS AND BRAKE DRUMS BE MEASURED AS WELL?

YES, THEY WILL BE MEASURED FOR ACCEPTABLE THICKNESS AND RUN-OUT WHICH IS THE AMOUNT OF WOBBLE AS THE ROTOR TURNS

HOW DO I PROVE TO THE CALIFORNIA DMV THAT MY VEHICLE PASSED BOTH THE INSPECTIONS?

THE INSPECTION STATION WILL FILL OUT AND SIGN 2 OFFICIAL PAPER CERTIFICATES FOR YOU TO PRESENT TO THE DMV

HOW LONG ARE THE BRAKE AND LAMP CERTIFICATES VALID?

EXACTLY THE SAME LENGTH OF TIME AS A SMOG CHECK CERTIFICATE, ONLY 90 DAYS. AFTER THAT LENGTH OF TIME, THEY EXPIRE AND YOU WILL HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE ENTIRE PROCESS AGAIN AND LIKELY HAVE TO PAY ONCE AGAIN
