  • A vehicle that failed an original safety inspection that was performed by DMV must be re-inspected by the DMV unless otherwise instructed by the DMV.
  • A vehicle that fails a safety inspection at a licensed new car dealer, used car dealer, or repairer (which are known as licensees) can be re-inspected by the licensee with the exception of Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and window tint re-inspections, which must be performed at a DMV Safety Inspection location.
