Bike Inspection

Where can I go to get my bike inspected here in Houston? Can you just take it to a car shop that does inspection or does it need to be a bike shop? Thanks in advance for the help.

Most car inspection facilities are going to do bike inspections also. Just make sure you do the brake test and not them unless you feel comfortable with someone you don't know riding your .

We can do them at our shop Fred Haas Toyota Country, but we don't advertise it, and we stay pretty busy so the wait might take a little longer than Mr sticker or a small place like that.

somebody overcharged u $2.50. blinkers arent required for inspection, but if they're on the bike, they will be inspected. if they dont work, take em off. if u have fronts, u must have rears and vice versa, but who needs blinkers anyways.

They are not inspectable at all. the inspection machine computer doesnt even give you the option to pass or fail the turn signals.

The inspector checked my blinkers. They are a safety item and if in non-working condition I suppose you could be failed for it.
