If the vehicle owner cannot make their first scheduled inspection appointment or if they miss their appointment the Base must request a new inspection appointment.

The vehicle owner must arrive at our Woodside Safety & Emissions Facility on the scheduled date and time for their inspection.  Bases MUST give a copy of the confirmation form to the vehicle owner.

Bases are reminded to tell the vehicle owner that they should not be late or appear without their confirmation form.  If they do not have their confirmation form or if they are late, they will not be allowed into the yard and the Base will have to re-schedule their appointment. 
After the vehicle passes inspection a TLC Officer will place the appropriate decals on the vehicle and the vehicle owner will receive their updated vehicle license in the mail. The vehicle cannot be operated/dispatched until it has passed its inspection.


Reminder: If the Base requests an incorrect appointment type, the vehicle owner’s application will NOT be processed and they will not be allowed to complete their transaction. The Base will then have to request a new appointment.
