Car inspection, registration question

I have a car I am selling really cheap. 800.00. It inspected fine last year and is due now for inspection.
The car runs well and I have never had any problems with it. Tires are good, lights work, brakes are good, horn works, all glass is good. Exterior and interior of car is good. The windows are electric and the front ones won't go down. Do you think that will be an inspection problem? I bought it that way from Caribbean Auto, and it has inspected every year fine.

Also, is there any advantage of having one of the people who go and do the inspection and registration for you?

I understand that the car has to be registered in the new buyers name, before it is taken out of my name completely. Even if I sign over the title and registration to the new owner. If they don't register it, I could be held liable for damages, correct?

Thanks for any info.

😉

When I got my car inspected recently this was the test:

Windshield wipers
Horn
Reverse lights
Brake lights
Headlights
Turning signals (even though no one uses them)

I rolled my windows down so I could hear his directions, maybe you'll want to open your door and stick your head out.

I went in February and was told to roll down my windows on both sides of the vehicle.

When I brought my last car down from the states the drivers window didn't work. It failed inspection I had to replace the window and motor.

Maybe it would be best if I just go and get it inspected myself and if the windows don't pass, I could get them fixed then up the price of the car.

If I get it inspected and it passes, would the person that buys it have to go get it inspected the next day?

Yes, the buyer still has to go through inspection.

You could just take the doors off before you go.

Congrats! What did you do about the windows, anything? It all depends on WHO you draw. There is a very large, very friendly man, who is a pleasure (and reasonable). There is another guy, well....not so nice and reasonable!

The other guy is the dude that yelled at me for honking my horn twice on accident! Quote: "Just honk once! This ain't no fun and games!"

Guess the waiting room is where the fun and games begin
