Oklahoma Car Inspection FAQ

Oklahoma vehicle inspection FAQ


State Vehicle Inspection & Emissions Testing

With routine vehicle inspections and regular emissions checks, vehicle drivers can be made aware of any problems with their cars. In case your car failed to pass the inspection or the vehicle-emissions test, you will know it requires some prompt attention and potentially some repair or service. Vehicle owners need to schedule the repair work ASAP because it may endanger the dependability of the car and even cause hefty penalties or perhaps a disqualified registration. Therefore, it is highly recommended to have your car inspected by a competent specialist at the very least every 6 months to avoid all these problems. Some commonly asked inquiries on car inspection are outlined 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 cars created in and after 1996. Basically, all the automobiles made in 1996 and after will certainly have an OBD system in them, which offers information records on self-diagnosis of the car frequently utilized by automotive service technicians prior to performing any kind of automobile repair services.


What Are The Most Common Causes Of a Failed Emissions Test?

An emissions examination can fail for several reasons as a result of malfunctioning vehicle components such as an injector, oxygen sensor, spark plugs or perhaps an EVAP system. One of the most typical reasons is damaged injectors. Either the injectors or a malfunctioning oxygen sensing unit can set off a “rich air-fuel blend” bring about a poor emissions test.

If your vehicle has worn-out spark plugs, there is a higher possibility that it might be the source of a boost in exhaust emissions. This, consequently, can result in a failed emissions test.

Any type of issue or deficiencies in the EVAP system or evaporative emission control system can cause trouble in the handling of the gas vapor released from the vehicle leading to atmospheric pollution.

If your automobile hasn’t undergone routine maintenance and the “check engine” light is lit up on the control panel, your vehicle may not clear the emissions test.


What Do They Check for in a Vehicle Inspection?

An authorized assessor conducts an automobile evaluation at state-approved assessment stations only. This is what they will check for:

  • Front lights: headlamps inspection to make sure of proper operation, no cracked lenses or lights, lights are the proper color, are identical, and turn signals are operable.
  • Tail lights: Turn signals, marker lights, hazard lights, license plate lights, brake lights, reverse lights are operable, and no broken taillights
  • Wheels and Tires: to check tire conditions for any type of indicators of deterioration and if there is a need for replacement
  • Mirrors: Make sure no mirrors are broken, damaged or missing
  • Seat belts: to analyze seat belts’ condition and ensure they are safely working or require a replacement
  • Brakes: a detailed brake evaluation to ensure proper brake reaction and if there are any type of brake fluid leaks
  • Horn: make sure the horn is working correctly
  • Examination of suspension and shock absorbers

How Long Does It Take To Get A Safety Inspection?

Depending upon the state, city, and county where the vehicle tests are carried out, the car safety inspection period may differ. However, for a majority of cars, this procedure typically takes an hour to an hour and a half.
