DPS safety inspection

Trying to get my bike safety inspected so I can register it in Houston. Several places that do DPS inspections for cars are telling me they don't do bikes. Called the DPS office and they say everyone who has the DPS logo has to do bikes... Where can I go to get my inspection? (The closer to UH the better!)

Car places have usually been a pain in the for motorcycles in my experience with sticker and plate location. Any motocycle dealer should be able to do It

I like working with Wild West Honda, but it's a drive since it is closer to mason road off of I10

Find a dealership; there should be plenty off of just about any freeway (45 or 59, or out I-10 west).
