Safety Inspection Station Locations
Missouri law requires motor vehicles to pass a vehicle safety inspection performed by an authorized inspection station. The renewal
notice you receive from the Department of Revenue will tell you if your vehicle needs to present a current safety
inspection certificate at the time of renewal.
The list of inspection stations changes frequently due to stations becoming inactive or not having an inspector, going out of business, being suspended for disciplinary reasons, and new stations being appointed or reinstated. Currently, there are approximately 3,491 stations statewide. Generally, all new car dealerships perform inspections. Many garages that repair vehicles are licensed to perform inspections. They will display a large yellow sign with black lettering designating them as an official inspection station.
If you are still unable to locate an inspection station, you may want to contact the Motor Vehicle Inspections Unit nearest you for further assistance.
DISCLAIMER: You are encouraged to contact the inspection station directly to ascertain whether their staff has the ability to conduct the inspection desired for your vehicle type.
