What is a Brake and Lamp Inspection?

A: The purpose of the Brake and Lamp Inspection & Certification is to make sure that a salvage titled vehicle is safe to drive on the road prior to being retitled.

When you "rebuild" a salvaged vehicle, because of either accident damage or theft of your vehicle, the CA DMV considers the owner of the vehicle to be changed, although the owner remains the same.

DMV requires that a Licensed Inspection station conduct a complete and thorough inspection of critical components which may have been damaged as a result of the accident or due to a theft damage.

A motor vehicle might also need an inspection to correct a defect citied by a local law enforcement agency or the CHP, California Highway Patrol. After the defect is corrected and inspected by a Licensed Facility, a certificate will be issued to be presented to the DMV or CHP as proof of repair.
