Getting Your State Inspection

As of March 1, 2016, Texas has a single sticker system for both vehicle inspections and registration, “Two Steps, One Sticker.”

What to bring to your Texas Vehicle Safety Inspection

  1. Proof of liability insurance: Must be an original and current Texas liability insurance card.
  2. Payment: Roadway Lube Plus, LLC accepts cash, check and credit cards (Visa, Master Card, Discover & American Express). Texas state law regulates the maximum cost of the inspection and requires that payment is made whether your vehicle passes or fails inspection.

What To Expect When We Inspect

Your Grangerland area vehicle inspection couldn’t be more convenient. Here’s what to expect.

Our certified state inspector will perform a brake test. All passengers will be asked to exit your car, truck, or van so that the test can be performed. Total vehicle inspection time is typically about 15 minutes or less. Hint: avoid the rush! Stop by Roadway Lube Plus, LLC  during the middle of the month, from the 10th through the 20th.
