Handling an Expired Inspection Ticket
Have you received an expired inspection ticket in Plano? Below is a section of the Transportation Code that speaks of the requirement of inspections on your motor vehicle.
Sec. 726.002. TESTING AND INSPECTION OF MOTOR VEHICLES. A municipality may adopt an ordinance:
(1) requiring each resident of the municipality, including a corporation having its principal office or place of business in the municipality, who owns a motor vehicle used for the transportation of persons or property and each person operating a motor vehicle on the public thoroughfares of the municipality to have each motor vehicle owned or operated, as appropriate, tested and inspected not more than four times in each calendar year;
(2) requiring each motor vehicle involved in an accident to be tested and inspected before it may be operated on the public thoroughfares of the municipality; or
(3) requiring that a motor vehicle operated on the public thoroughfares of the municipality be tested, inspected, and approved by the testing and inspecting authority.
Now if you have a ticket for expired inspections it can be tricky to get those dismissed sometimes. If your cars inspection has been expired for more then 60 days then the court will not dismiss your ticket. And yes you can always just go in and pay your ticket because it is a non moving violation ticket but if you have anything on your driving record and DPS sees that you have been driving around with an invalid license your drivers license can get suspended.
