"In 1981, then-Gov. Bob Graham and the Legislature halted motor vehicle inspections after complaints about long lines at state-run inspection stations."
I found this a web site!!
Txdps is a inspector which is certified to give inspections for a person's car. Most state police stations are also certified for this job. For private inspections, most car dealerships will give an inspection for a fee.
Mandatory car inspections should be free for everyone once a year.
yes they can stop you , you need to return the car back to the lender in other for you to register a new car.
The only two states I have encountered are California and Florida.
Car safety inspections are required annually in Texas. This is part of the registration renewal process and in some vehicles will also need emissions testing.
In states that require annual inspections, no it must have a current inspection to be sold.But most states require no annual inspections.
A fine, or your car may be impounded.
Most states are discontinuing the safety inspections anyway,but to answer your question 20 to 25 years depending on the state you live in.
returning a car in Florida
No. There is no Florida car inspection.
Commercial inspection requirements are federal not state to state and can be found at FMCSA.DOT.GOV
