When considering auto repairs, it is common to focus on the essential components of a vehicle that are required for its functionality. However, in California, it is also crucial to ensure that the brake and lamp lights of a car are in proper working condition due to the high number of people on the road. Most accidents involve multiple vehicles, which is why the state has implemented a brake and lamp inspection process to minimize the risk of accidents. This process not only ensures that cars are road-ready but also guarantees road safety.

A brake and lamp inspection is officially recognized by the state of California as a means to address the importance of properly functioning brake and lamp lights. This inspection evaluates a vehicle's ability to feature vital components that play a crucial role in accidents. In California, a brake and lamp inspection is mandatory when a car is being retitled, regardless of whether it has been involved in an accident or reported stolen. The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) requires this inspection by a State Licensed Inspection Station to verify that the vehicle still meets safety standards. After experiencing theft or being involved in an accident, a car's capabilities may be compromised. Thus, the inspection ensures that nothing unusual has occurred for the safety of all.

During a brake and lamp inspection, a licensed brake and lamp technician from the Bureau of Automotive Repair (B.A.R.) examines the functionality of the lights in a vehicle. This includes visually inspecting all lights and measuring the light emitted by the headlights.
