BAR launches vehicle safety inspection program questionnaire

BAR is soliciting input from its stakeholders and welcomes feedback on the following questions

Sacramento, Calif.—The Bureau of Automotive Repair (BAR) is working to develop the new vehicle safety inspection program established by Assembly Bill 471 (Low, Chapter 372, Statutes of 2021). At a minimum, the new program will combine the current brake and lamp inspection programs into one program as soon as Jan. 1, 2024.

As part of this process, BAR is soliciting input from its stakeholders and welcomes feedback on the following questions:

• Beyond the brake and lamp inspection, what additional systems or items should be inspected as part of a vehicle safety inspection?

• What process should BAR use to verify that the vehicle receiving the safety certification was inspected?

• How does BAR verify that the licensed inspector was the one who performed the safety inspection?

• What is the best way to transition from current brake and lamp station/adjuster licenses to new vehicle safety inspection licenses?

Responses are requested by Feb. 15, 2022, and should be submitted by email to Mathew.Gibson@dca.ca.gov.
