Terms to Know About Automobile Smog and Brake Lamp Inspection

If you are considering selling, buying a car or if it is time to renew your vehicle’s tabs it is important to check into the inspections that are required by your DMV. Common inspections include smog, brake lamp and more. By passing an inspection, a vehicle is considered safe for the road and the environment. Here are some terms to know about DMV required and other car inspections.

  • DMV – The DMV is the department of motor vehicles. It is an agency that operates within each state and is responsible for helping the public take care of registration and certification issues regarding vehicles.
  • Register – All automobiles are required to be registered with the state for tax, inspection, proof of identity and insurance purposes. Information on how to register your vehicle can be found at your local DMV location or website.
  • Emissions Testing – An emissions test will check for what hazardous elements are released by your vehicle during use. By testing for emissions, the community attempts to cut down on environmental pollution caused by automobiles.
  • Brake Lamp – A brake lamp is the rear light on a car which lights up to indicate when a car is slowing down or stopping. This light helps other drivers to know when the vehicle in front of them is using their brakes. Regular brake lamp inspections help to avoid car accidents.
  • Smog – Vehicles of a certain make and age are required to pass smog testing every couple years in certain states. Smog is a mixture of pollutants and more that are released by vehicles, factories and more.
  • Hybrid – A hybrid vehicle operates using both gasoline and electricity power which reduces its smog discharges and often doesn’t require emissions testing.

    If you live in a congested urban area, chances are your car is equipped with a smog lamp. Guarding against the harmful pollution smog brings to metropolitan areas, vehicles may be mandated to have these lamps which are inspected on an annual basis for functionality. Environmentally-savvy drivers may also elect to check their smog lamps as much as their brakes to help safeguard the planet from pollution. Like a regular auto inspection, vehicles may be inspected for the amount of emissions they output. Checking this feature, service station technicians will use a computer diagnostic system to determine if a vehicle is emitting over the legal limit. Upon passing the inspection, your car is given a certification sticker to put on your windshield for proof, usually good for a year. Smog and brake lamp maintenance should be followed yearly with these methods. Other issues such as oil changes and motor problems can be tested by technicians. Regular, cheap checkups prevent major issues done the road when your engine indicator lights up, so be sure to schedule ahead of time. To find out what your legal smog emissions regulations, call your local DMV to see if a law in your area exists. A dependable repair shop should be thoroughly researched before you make your choice. Call area shops from your phone book or online and ask about their experience. A knowledgeable automotive station will have a few years’ history in business and be certified by the DMV. So whether you're registering your first car or maintaining the family minivan, it's good to look into having a reliable auto shop ahead of inspection time.
