Man, that's easy compared to VA. In VA, if you don't "know" somebody, they check quite a bit. Verify you have a cat, and it's properly working, tread on tires has so much life, has muffler, all lights work & aligned, nothing hanging from rear-view mirror, no holes in exhaust, the emissions system on the car is working (nevermind if you remove the emissions completely, it'll pass usually, lol). Basically, if it's on there, it needs to be functional, like the 3rd brake light. I've had cars fail for mis-aligned headlights, turn-signal not working, windshield wiper is rotted, bad shocks, tail-light covers (Rams head logo on my Dakota tail-lights), etc, etc. If you know someone, it's "turn your lights on, ok.. left signal, right signal.. ok.. fix that front right turn-signal, here's your sticker".
