Lex Brodie's state of hawaii Vehicle Safety check alert!! inspections started back up on 5/15/2020!!
Attention Please – Hawaii "Safety Inspections" / Vehicle Inspections are no longer Suspended!
Aloha Safety Inspection Customers,
In an effort to promote social distancing, the Governor had suspended the Vehicle Inspections aka "Safety Inspections" from March 23, 2020, that lasted until May 14, 2020.
But, the Hawaii Vehicle Inspection Program / "Safety Inspections" are back on from May 15, 2020 at 8:00 A.M.
Please note: Inspection certificates that expired in March, April and May 31, 2020 will be valid through August 31, 2020. BUT, best to not wait until August to complete your inspection (Safety Inspections store traffic, after May 15, 2020, will tend to be VERY BUSY!)
Please note, safety inspections scheduled mid-June or Mid-July will be better dates to perform your inspection since mid-month inspection store traffic will normally have less "Safety Inspection" request. Appointments, which can be made online from this website, are highly recommended. We are expecting a rush of inspections after 5/16/2020, thus, waiting times may tend to be lengthy without an appointment.
Thank you for your understanding.
LEX BRODIE'S STATE OF HAWAII VEHICLE SAFETY CHECK
Lex Brodie's is happy to provide State of Hawaii Annual Safety Inspection Services. Unfortunately, after the new digitally documented Safety Inspections were required, many shops stopped performing the annual Safety Inspections. As a result, the remaining shops are often overloaded with Safety Inspection request.
It is highly recommended to NOT WAIT till the end of the month to get your inspection. To avoid the last minute rush, we recommend scheduling a mid-month inspection before it expires.
We also recommend using our Lex Brodie's Easy On-Line Appointment Tool to set your Safety Inspection appointment to help reduce your waiting time.
Please note, properly performed Safety Inspections take time, the State of Hawaii Department of Transportation provides a 28 page manual on the proper inspection process! Due to the consistent volume of inspections, along with the digitally documented procedure for the 34 items inspected; we recommend budgeting for up to one and half hours waiting time with an appointment. "Walk In" Safety Inspections are welcome, but it's best to plan for up to a 4 hour wait since we'll be working the "Walk In" Safety Inspection in with the scheduled appointments and other various work request that have been dropped off previously.
KEY TIME SAVING TIP: Schedule your appointment mid month BEFORE it expires.
