THE PURPOSE OF A BRAKE AND LAMP INSPECTION IS TO ASSURE THAT A VEHICLE BEING ISSUED A SALVAGE CERTIFICATEIS IN A SAFE AND ROAD-WORTHY CONDITION PRIOR TO BEING RE-TITLED.

WHEN YOU “REVIVE” A SALVAGED VEHICLE, EITHER DUE TO ACCIDENT DAMAGE OR THEFT OF THE VEHICLE, THE CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF MOTOR VEHICLES CONSIDERS THE OWNERSHIP OF THE VEHICLE TO BE CHANGED, EVEN THOUGH THE OWNER REMAINS THE SAME.

THE DMV REQUIRES THAT A STATE LICENSED BRAKE AND LAMP ADJUSTING INSPECTION STATION CONDUCT A THOROUGH AND COMPLETE EXAMINATION OF THESE CRITICAL SAFETY COMPONENTS WHICH MAY HAVE BEEN DAMAGED OR MIS-ALIGNED DUE TO AN ACCIDENT OR, AS A RESULT OF THEFT DAMAGE. 

A VEHICLE MAY ALSO NEED SUCH AN INSPECTION TO CORRECT A DEFECT CITED BY A LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY,SUCH AS THE CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL. THE INSPECTION IS CALLED A BRAKE AND LAMP INSPECTION AND, WHEN SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED, A “SALVAGE CERTIFICATE” IS ISSUED TO BE PRESENTED TO THE DMV OR CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL AS PROOF OF CORRECTION OF ANY CITED CONDITION AND THE SAFETY OF THE VEHICLE.
