Inspection in Austin Texas

Recommended Posts

Every year it is such a hassle to get the RV inspected.  We have only found one place in Austin and they are in an out and hard to catch.  Anybody using someone in Austin area that they like?  Even better, is there a mobile inspection option?  Thx!

Emission testing is no big deal if your vehicle is operating correctly.  On gasoline engines with OBDII engine controls (1996 and newer),  they simply scan the computer for codes or indications of non-functioning systems. if you don't have an illuminated check engine light you will very likely pass. That's it.

Diesel powered vehicles are currently exempted from emission testing.

So other than a slightly higher inspection charge ($18.50 vs. $7.00) there is no reason to go out of your way to avoid an emission test if your vehicle is operating correctly.

Would they require emission test in Austin?  Pick a small town instead.

If you're registered in an emissions required county, you can't go outside your county for an inspection anyway.

You can have it inspected in another county that does the emissions testing, which is any of the big metro areas in Texas.

That's good to know.  What about San Antonio?

Have had good service at Southern Tire Mart, located at 9665 US 290 East in Austin. They do all types of state inspections for rv's and other vehicles that need it. They have big bays and easy in and out of their property.
