Policy Position on Inspection

AAMVA recognizes that vehicle condition is a vital part of any overall traffic safety effort. Therefore, AAMVA recommends that member jurisdictions adopt and implement appropriate emissions, mechanical safety and structural integrity inspection programs to help ensure the safe condition of vehicles on the highway. AAMVA further recommends that jurisdictions strive to create consistent equipment requirements and inspection standards and training for inspectors, and that jurisdictions reciprocally recognize and accept inspections performed in another jurisdiction that administers any inspection program that is substantially similar to its own program(s).
