Heads-up, Texas Trailer Inspection to Begin

Just more hoops for Texas.

Law requires that trailers get safety inspections - Houston Chronicle

??? It's been required for years! Our 30' TT was inspected annually as it was a little over 7000 lbs.

It seems to me since hurricane sandy hit my area of NJ I now see a trailer in 8 out of every 10 yards I pass by now. It would stand to reason that the local governments are noticing as well and seeing a cash crop.....

yep been on the books for years and years
but no one every checked
texas is updating its dmv system to capture vehicle inspections and registration renewal , so your inspection will match up with your registration.
trailers are easy, lights and tires

I bought my new trailer in March 2014. The 2 year registration sticker expires in February 2016. I have a safety inspection sticker on the side of the trailer that expires March 2015.

If I go down and have it inspected now will it get a new sticker or will it only be an electronically transmitted "passed inspection" report to the state? I guess I will need to have it inspected next February before I can registered in February.

Comments welcomed.

According to my info, you will not require a new inspection until just before your registration is renewed - you happen to fall in a grace window...

In your opinion, should I scrape off the sticker that expires this month or just leave it alone until I get it inspected just prior to my February 2016 registration? Thanks

Money? he has it all. Truck license is $660, TT reg is $220 sales tax is right at 10%, property tax is 1%+, and the highest income tax. I am thankful that I have enough money left to get out of this state for a vacation.

Nothing new! Brought in a used trailer from La. in 05. It had to be inspected before the state would issue tag. Been in force at least that long.
Now the real problem is that even utility trailers are going to be inspected. All tires must be round and not flat and all lights have to work. That will be $7 please!
Good luck, good health and safe travels!
