5 Tips for Passing the Utah Vehicle Safety Inspection

If your car is required to have a safety inspection in Utah this year, read on for tips on how to ensure your car will pass the Utah auto safety inspection and avoid returning for a second inspection. Get it right the first time and your car will be in tip-top shape for a Utah auto safety inspection.

1

Tires

Tires

Check your tire treads for signs of wear. If your tires tread depth is less than 2/32 inch in any two tread grooves, it will be rejected. Mismatching tires will also result in a rejection. Tires on the same axle must be the same size or construction although mismatched tread designs are allowed.

2

Brakes

Brakes

Your brake pads need to be checked for wear. Break pads must be no less than 2/32 inch thick to pass the Utah auto safety inspection. In addition to break pads, your parking brake must be functioning and able to hold the vehicle. Be sure that your brakes are in working order.

3

Lighting

Lighting

Your car’s headlamps must be in working order and only project white light. Backup lights must illuminate when the transmission is in reverse. If the backup lights remain illuminated when the transmission is not in reverse, the car will not pass the Utah auto safety inspection.

Suspension

For cars that have after-market suspension, the chassis and exhaust system of the car cannot be lower than three inches above the ground. During the inspection, the tech will look for and loose parts and also check the struts and shock absorbers for leaks. Make sure these things are taken care of to avoid having to do an additional inspection.
