A top priority in Texas is motorist safety, and because of this, vehicles registered in the state of Texas are required to pass an inspection given annually to ensure that each vehicle is in compliance with safety standards. Although safety inspection is required throughout the entire state, emission testing is only in 17 Texas counties that federally mandate clean air requirements. These counties include Brazoria, Fort Bend, Galveston, Harris, Montgomery, Collin, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Johnson, Kaufman, Parker, Rockwall, Tarrant, Travis, Williamson and El Paso counties.
