Hey there! I haven't been a Springfield resident for long. I need to get a safety inspection for my car to get the tags renewed. Google hasn't been super useful as it's mainly been bringing up businesses that do brake inspections not not state safety inspections. Where do you recommend getting a car inspection done?

Pretty much any shop in town can do an inspection for tags! If you’re unsure just call shops and ask them!

Interstate Auto. Super quick in and out, you sit in the car for most of it!

Mitchem on Campbell or Bob's Automotive on Enterprise are where I've had the best luck getting in.

I go to Route 66 auto on St Louis St.

I also get most of my repairs done there. I know the general standards as posted on the Highway Patrol page so I seek out the standards before needing an inspection but mine have always turned out well.

Lotta folks shit on inspections and I get it, but most of it is legit vehicle safety.

Any Big O tire will get you in and out quick.

i’ll be honest i’ve been having pretty bad luck with big o tires recently - maybe they’re better with inspections but they really screwed me over when i got new tires (north glenstone location specifically) it took over 4 hours and they forgot to balance the tires so i had to take it back and wait another 2 to get it sorted out.

Yikes. I’m near the W Republic Rd location and they’ve always done a good job on the 4 sets I’ve bought. My FJ Cruiser tires stay balanced which isn’t easy.

Big O told me “my headlights were too dim to pass” and then said they couldn’t fix them. Went to ORilley to replace them and the guy working said they looked fine. I took my car somewhere else and paid again for an inspection and they passed it. Yeah I don’t have LED headlights but geez.

Someone either didn't know what they were talking about, or was trying to pull one over on you. I'd wager he didn't know, versus he was trying to rip you off.

Here is the official checklist from the state DPS. It does not mention headlights being too dim. If you want to read the whole 59 page manual, Here it is. (headlights are on page 22 to 23)
