Florida doesn't require vehicle inspections so basically anything goes . This helps the Hispanic population who can't afford tires and breaks .So what if a vehicle unsafe and the operator has no licence .

Welcome to New York, the most heavily taxed state in the union.

SAFETY ITEMS INSPECTED ON CARS AND LIGHT TRUCKS

Seat Belts
Inspect for proper operation and anchorage.
Model years 1969 and newer - one seat belt is required for each seating position
Model years 1967 and 1968 - two front seat belts are required (driver position included), and one seat belt is required for each seating position elsewhere in the vehicle
Model years 1965 and 1966 - two front seat belts are required (driver position included)
Your vehicle's Air Bag Warning Lamp will be checked for proper operation. You will be informed if the vehicle's air bag warning lamp is on or is not working. This is an advisement only and not cause for rejection.

Brakes
At least one front wheel must be removed to inspect the brakes.
Brake pedal reserve - brake pedal must have 1/3 reserve
Brake pedal fade - brake must hold for one minute without fading
Power brake unit - check for proper operation
Brake master cylinder - check for leakage and proper fluid level
Disc brake pads - check condition
Drum brake linings - thickness of linings must be at least 1/16 inch on bonded linings or at least 1/32 inch over rivet head on riveted linings, with no loose or missing rivets or lining
Brake drums and/or rotors - check condition
Wheel cylinders and/or calipers - check for leakage
All brake lines and hoses - check for leaks, cracks, chafing, restrictions, and improper support
Parking brake - check for components and function
Brake equalization - test vehicle for a straight stop without significant wheel pull

Steering, Front End, Suspension, Chassis, Frame and Wheel Fasteners
Front end assembly - check condition
Steering wheel play - check for excessive freeplay
All steering linkages - check for tightness or binding, excessive wear and/or looseness in parts, including idler arm, center control arm, tie-rod ends, drag link ends, steering and pitman arms, gear box, cross shafts, bushings, wheel bearings, steering column or steering wheel shaft mounting
Power steering - check operation, condition of belt, and for leakage
Shock absorbers - check shock mountings and for broken or missing shock absorbers
Springs and torsion bars - check for sagging or broken springs, or a broken, disconnected, missing or bent torsion or stabilizer bar
Chassis/frame - check for breaks, cracks, or severe rust at the suspension attachment points
Wheel fasteners - check for missing or broken parts

Tires (Except spare)
Tread depth - must be at least 2/32 inch when measured in two adjacent major tread grooves showing the most wear
Tire condition - check for any fabric break or cut over the length or width of 1 inch, visible bumps, bulges or knots, and any restricted use designation on the tire
Tire pressure - You will be informed if the vehicle's tire pressure in not within the manufacturer's recommendation. This is an advisement only, and not cause for rejection.

Lights
All lighting must be of an approved type and inspected for operation, proper mounting, and broken or missing lenses. Side marker lamps, parking lamps, and additional flashing turning lamps mounted on the side of the vehicle are not inspected.
Headlamps (low and high beam)
Tail lamps
Stop lamps
Directional signals
Backup lights (1969 and newer)
License plate lights
Hazard warning/four-way flasher (1966 and newer)
Directional signal indicator

Windshield and Other Glass
All windows
Check for approved safety glass or rigid plastic and condition
Check for window tint

Windshield
Check for presence and condition
No crack of 11 inches long or longer is allowed if any part of the crack is within the area cleared by the windshield wiper.

Windshield Wipers and Blades
(Not including rear window or headlamp wipers)
Wipers - check for presence and operation
Blades - check condition

Horn
Check mounting and operation

Mirrors
Check mirror locations for proper mounting, cracks, breaks, and/or discoloration.
Model year 1970 and newer - must have a left outside mirror and an inside mirror, or both left and right outside mirrors
Model year 1968 and newer - must have a left outside mirror
1967 and older - must have one mirror that is either an inside mirror or a left outside mirror
Note: Any vehicle that has a permanent obstruction of the view through the rear window (Example: a truck or van) must have both a left and a right outside mirror.

Fuel Leaks
Any fuel leak that causes dripping or pooling is not acceptable.

And if it has a computer: They plug into the OBDII port to check for faults and if there is any history fault with ABS within the last 2 months they will fail it. Then the OBDII file is transmitted to Albany for the record.
Older cars, visual inspection only, and safety items. $10.00/ year
Newer cars with computer visual, and computer data. $21.00/ year

And the slick shops will tear off the inspection sticker before the inspection and if anything fails they have to fix it before it leaves their shop. Those are the ones that get nuked from orbit as soon as you leave the shop.
Most reasonable inspectors will tell you what failed and give you the time left on the sticker to get it fixed, and won't charge you again for the second inspection.

We have a long list in Maine but it gets abbreviated to lights ,tires and front suspension .$20 for standard vehicles and $50 for commercial .Antique vehicles do not require inspection .

I encourage lawlessness

In GA, if the car passes the emissions inspection, you're good to go.

Not the case in Virginia.

My Vette was dissected and FAILED the inspection because a tie rod end link needed to be replaced & a bulb was burnt out. $500 later she was re-inpected & passed.

The worst part was when they put a REJECTED decal on the windshield. That was mean & uncalled for.

Asshats.
