Oklahoma Vehicle Inspection FAQ


Oklahoma car inspection FAQ


State Car Inspection & Emissions Testing

With routine car inspections and regular emissions checks, drivers can be informed about any problems with their cars. In case your vehicle didn’t clear the inspection or the vehicle-emissions test, you will definitely know it requires some prompt attention and possibly some repair or service. Vehicle owners should make plans for the repair as soon as possible because it may endanger the dependability of the vehicle and also result in substantial penalties and even an invalidated registration. For that reason, it is highly advised to have your vehicle checked by a skilled professional a minimum of every 6 months to avoid all these troubles. Some commonly asked inquiries on automobile inspection are described here.


What is On-Board Diagnostics or OBD?

The OBD or On-Board Diagnostics, or OBD II is a standardized computer system executed in all vehicles constructed in and after 1996. Simply put, all the vehicles made in 1996 and after will have an OBD system in them, which supplies information reports on self-diagnosis of the vehicle frequently used by automotive technicians before performing any automobile repair services.


Common Causes of a Failed Emissions Test

A car emissions test can fail for several reasons because of malfunctioning automobile parts such as an injector, oxygen sensing unit, spark plugs or perhaps an EVAP system. The most common causes is malfunctioning injectors. Either the injectors or a malfunctioning oxygen sensor can set off a “rich air-fuel combination” leading to a disappointing emissions test.

If your automobile has damaged ignition system, there is a greater possibility that it might be the reason for a rise in exhaust emissions. This, in turn, can lead to a failed vehicle-emissions test.

Any problem or shortages in the EVAP system or evaporative exhaust control system can cause a trouble in the handling of the gas vapor discharged from the automobile leading to air pollution.

If your automobile hasn’t undergone regular maintenance and the “check engine” light is illuminated on the control panel, your car may fail the emissions test.


What Do They Check for in a Vehicle Inspection?

A licensed assessor performs a car inspection at state-approved evaluation stations only. This is what they will check for:

  • Headlights: headlamps inspection to ensure appropriate operation, no broken lenses or lights, lights are the correct color, are the same, and turn signals are operable.
  • Tail lights: Turn signals, marker lights, hazard lights, license plate lights, brake lights, reverse lights are operable, and no damaged taillights
  • Wheels and Tires: to inspect tire problems for any kind of indicators of damage and if there is a need for replacement
  • Mirrors: Ensure no mirrors are broken, broken or missing
  • Seat belts: to examine safety belt condition and ensure they are securely working or require a replacement
  • Brakes: an in-depth brake inspection to ensure proper brake action and if there are any kind of brake fluid leaks
  • Horn: make sure the horn is working correctly
  • Inspection of suspension and shock absorbers

How Long Does It Take To Get A Safety Inspection?

Depending upon the state, city, and area where the vehicle tests are conducted, the vehicle safety inspection duration might vary. Nevertheless, for most vehicles, this procedure usually takes an hour to 90 minutes.
