What is the purpose of a brake and lamp inspection?

In California, a brake and lamp inspection is necessary to ensure that a vehicle is safe to drive and operate properly on the road. Brake and lamp inspections are required anytime an automobile is being retitled, which includes after a car accident or vehicle theft.* The DMV requires a thorough examination by a State Licensed Inspection Station to make sure no parts of the vehicle’s brake system or lights were damaged or misaligned due to an accident or theft. The overall purpose of these inspections is for the safety of the driver as well as the safety of other drivers on the road!

What happens during a brake inspection?

When Furgerson's Garage  performs an Official Brake Inspection, we follow the rules and regulations set forth by the State of California. We remove the tires from your car and perform a thorough visual inspection, as well as use special measuring devices to ensure that all manufacturer specifications are met. You must also pass a performance, functional, and safety brake test. We make sure that there are no hazards that would cause the brake system to not operate properly. Your safety is very important to us, and we take these brake inspections – as well as our brake repair services – very seriously!

What happens during a lamp inspection?

Our brake and lamp technicians are licensed by the Bureau of Automotive Repair (B.A.R.). We only use B.A.R. approved equipment and procedures when we conduct our Official Lamp Inspections. During these lamp inspections, we check to make sure the lighting system in your car is operating properly. We visually inspect your vehicle’s lighting system, and measure the aim of your headlights. We also make sure that your brake lights, turn signals and clearance lights are all in great working order. Once we complete the inspection, we will issue a 90-day certificate that can be presented to the California DMV as proof that your vehicle has passed and is ready for operation.
