    From what i got in the news is you still have to get inspection. You get that first and then you get registration after proof of inspection

    They'll make sure that the price increases or an additional fee is added, too. These things never get cheaper!

    I wonder how that is going to work when my inspection expires in June and the registration expires in November? Hopefully there will be a grace period on the inspection until November.

    If there is one thing I dread, it's the annual ritual of taking my 3 vehicles in for the state inspection. Two are in the same month. I noticed this last time, that they didn't drive the vehicles. They usually drive around a couple of blocks to check the brakes and overall driveability. I live in one of those counties where the emissions inspection is required. An extra $16 for that.

    And of course there is the obligatory up-sell. Everything from wiper blades to brake system flushes to valve cover gaskets.

    I'm actually a fan of having an inspection every year. While it's a huge PITA and I used to hate it, working in Oklahoma for 6 months and noticing some of the wrecks on the road made me appreciate why we have an inspection system in Texas.

    Just so long as it never gets out of hand. A buddy of mine told me about what they do in NY and it's pretty much stealing. Nearly impossible to pass a yearly inspection there without having some sort of maintenance done.

    I found a little shop that only does stickers, close to work, looks like hell, and is never busy. I roll in, 10 minutes later I roll out with a sticker. No up-sell because they don't do repairs, but they actually do the full inspection and let you know of any problems (like 1 of the 2 license plate light bulbs was out on my truck - it passed the inspection, but he let me know). He doesn't drive it far, just around his parking lot, but enough to check everything on the list.
