Bob Buchanan said:Hi Ron:
I purchased my rig in Round Rock, TX earlier this year -- and it had current inspection stickers on the windshield.? What do you pay for such an inspection and is it required every year? Fortunately, I was able to high tail it out of the State before they had to be renewed.
In CA, we have to have a smog inspection done every two years -- but that is all for plates, plate renewal or transfer of ownership. It's best to have it done at a shop that "only" does the inspection. Otherwise, some have run into shops that want to repair something that really doesn't need it.
The whole thing is ludicrous as 18 wheeler big rigs sending tons of diesel soot into the atmosphere are not required to have such an inspection (or that's the last word I read). And the little guy with a Honda Civic has to pony up the bucks every two years to keep the environment clean. ??? ???
The only thing more ludicrous are the State inspection stations on CA borders.

scottydl said:LOL, I can't believe they actually included trailer on that list.? ;D? Of course that means at some point, someone (probably lots of people) seriously asked "you mean I don't have to get my trailer smog tested?"? ?
