Everyone in louisiana has to have them. They cost about $10. U can get them at any oil or tire change place. Even at the gas station next to wal mart.

Ok, i had checked online and read somewhere that I would get something in the mail, I just transferred a couple of vehicles over from Mi. to La., that was a costly move with this 9% sales tax.. Sucks...

Do they actually do an inspection, or is it just a formality??

They inspect the vehicle. Window tint, horn, wipers, lights, etc. It's a pain, but must be done.

For Inspection sticker can run you about 200 bucks, if you don't have on there is a different fee if its expired and then it's by how long expired it is. Its much cheaper to get an inspection sticker

Sorry the above post was meant to say the ticket will cost you about 200 bucks, whereas an inspection sticker is 10 bucks.

I called the station next to Walmart, and it's like hit and miss, he might be here at 1:00, you can try him at such and such a time., seems like if u have to have them there should be an easier way to get them.

For the most part the inspection process in Louisiana is a joke. The best example is the old couple that ran an inspection service on Texas street. The only thing they were interested in was the $10 and the glass tint.

Arkansas does not require an inspection sticker.

Some stated go much more in depth to include an emissions test. This can get to be ugly. I think they now do it for cars in Baton Rouge so it will not be long before our law makers discover that it will be another revenue source if they extend this to the entire state. They just never quit digging. Rest assured, however, this will not be another TAX just another FEE. So we can pay for it out of out FEE account account and not our TAX account. I assume that every one has separate TAX and FEE accounts???????

I found the battery warehouse to be the most convenient place for me (grand ecore road). I didn't have to wait on any oil changes or anyone to come in. I was waited on promptly and was satisfied with the customer service!$10.00, registration, drivers license and proof of insurance!

I hope you find it and it is on Hwy 6. I was very glad I chose to stop there and no wait at all! They have been there for years!

That's not a gas station per say, it's a convenience store with a morning pump attendant. Without going into a lot of detail, let's just say the guy is retired but didn't like the idea of sitting on his butt all day doing nothing. I think he might still drive a school bus too, which is why he's generally gone in the afternoon.

I've gone right down the road to jiffylube for inspections and oil changes for several years now.
