Motorists driving in Texas may not be aware that the state is host to a dual inspection program. Since 1996, four (4) counties in the state have had an emissions based test in addition to their annual safety inspection. Those counties include Harris. Beginning May 1, 2002 the test itself will change to consist of an OBDII test, for vehicles 1996 & newer, and an ASM2 test, for vehicles 1995 & older.
The following auto services in the Katy area provide state inspection services for all three counties on a first come first serve basis. State Inspection fees for each county: Harris County $39.50, Fort Bend County $12.50, and Waller County $12.50.
