What is the purpose of a brake and head lamp inspection?

In California, an inspection of the brakes and lamps is necessary to ensure that a vehicle is safe to drive and operates properly. Brake and lamp inspections are required each time the title of a car is changed, which includes after a car accident or vehicle theft. The DMV requires a thorough examination by a State Licensed Inspection Station to ensure that no part of the brake system or vehicle’s lights is damaged or misaligned due to an accident or theft. The general objective of these inspections is the safety of the driver and the safety of other drivers on the road!

We make sure there are no risks that make the brake system malfunction. Your safety is very important to us, and we take these brake inspections, as well as our brake repair services, very seriously!

Lamp Inspection

What happens during a head lamp inspection?

Our brake and lamp technicians are authorized by the California Bureau of Automotive Repair Office (B.A.R.). We only use B.A.R. approved equipment and procedures when we perform our official lamp inspections. During these lamp inspections, we verify that your car’s lighting system works properly. We visually inspect the lighting system of your vehicle and measure the objective of your headlights. We also make sure that your brake lights, turn signals and safety lights are in perfect working order. Once we complete the inspection, we will issue a 90-day certificate that can be submitted to the California DMV as proof that your vehicle has already passed and is ready to go.
