Brake & Light Inspection

Best brake service in San Diego! If you are re-registering your vehicle and the DMV requested Brake and Lamp Certification for your vehicle you’ve come to the right place!

Mr. Car Auto Repair is a certified and State Licensed Station for your California Brake and Lamp Inspections. We inspect and certify all kind of passenger cars and trucks.

California drivers who are re-registering a branded vehicle need to have a brake and lamp inspection to receive a certificate of compliance that the vehicle is in safe operating condition before the DMV will issue a title to the owner of the vehicle. The brake and lamp inspections and certification must be performed by a repair shop that is certified to perform these inspections.

CA DMV requires that a State Licensed Inspection Station conduct a thorough and complete examination of the critical components which may have been possibly damaged or misaligned due to an accident or as a result of theft damage.

Some of the components that will be inspected are:

  • Brake Pads
  • Brake Calipers
  • Brake Rotors
  • Brake Drums
  • Brake Lines, Fluids
  • Emergency Brake System
  • Foot Brakes
  • Suspensions
  • High Beams & Low Beams
  • Brake & Tail Lamps
  • Fog Lights
  • Turn Signals/Flashers
  • Instrument Cluster Illumination
  • Operating Controls

A vehicle may also need such an inspection to correct a defect cited by a law enforcement agency such as the California Highway Patrol. This is also called Brake and Lamp Inspection and when successfully completed, a certificate is issued to be presented to the DMV or California Highway Patrol as proof of correction of any cited condition and the safety of the vehicle.

Successfully issued certificates are good for 90 days to be presented to the requesting agency.
