Deal Details

Here are the normal prices that nearly everyone charges for the annual state inspection:
http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/vi/m...q/fees.htm

In Dallas, the normal fee for passenger cars is $39.75. Sometimes you can find places that give $5 off, but I've actually found a few places here in Dallas that offer $10 off this price consistently:

City Tire
1829 Belt Line Road, Garland, TX
(972) 414-3400

International Auto & Tire
2009 South Garland Avenue, Garland, TX
(972) 278-8218 ‎

Please post if you know of other large-discount state inspection stations, not just Dallas area.

This would be helpful. I live in Bedford but haven't noticed any discount places. I'll keep an eye out.

Interesting. Thanks OP, I didn't know people offered discounts off the state inspection, although I guess they always could as the stae only stipulates the maximum that can be charged..

Why the thumbs down? I did not know that discount were given for state inspection. I'll search for what I paid in San Antonio but I know it was not $40 like in Dallas. Found it, $15 did not do it in Austin since it was double $30 and I go often to San Antonio.

How are you able to get your car inspected in a different city? I thought they only will test it in the same county your car is registered in?

No, you can get a car tested in any city/county. I go to school in Waco (McLennan county) and get my car inspected down there since it's only $14 (no emissions).

Just tell the inspector you go to school in that city/county.

Uh, pretty sure you have to sign something legally binding to that effect if you do. At least it worked that way in the DFW area back in the 90's, when only Dallas and Tarrant counties had emissions controls.

Nope, I did not sign anything. Granted, some people may be more "strict" than others.

There's a place near the Dallas Zoo on I-35 called Tire King that has a sign saying state inspections are $33. I have not tried them yet, but I plan to do so at the beginning of next month.
