Bringing your vehicle in for the Virginia safety inspection is one way you can protect yourself and others.
The brakes of your vehicle have to be working properly in order to pass the yearly requirement.
There can’t be a soft brake pedal or a twisted brake hose.
A vehicle will fail if any active leaks or oil contamination is found.
Brake pads must be at or above 2/32 inches and rotors need a certain thickness that’s based on a manufacturer’s recommendations.
Vehicle safety inspectors are also checking to make sure the parking brake is able to hold on a slight incline.
If it feels like there is a mechanical issue, they can take it for a test drive.
