Tlc inspection passing question

I'm not from NYC, however, I've seen worse vehicles pass inspection. They mostly look for the lights to work, seat belts work, seats move and doors open. Cosmetics not much, as long as it doesn't affect the performance of the car. You can fix the grill your self if you are concerned, just get a replacement from a local junkyard, the bumper you can try to buff it up a bit, maybe retouch it with paint. The key is that there is nothing dangling or making noise/smoke. Good luck

Hello. I have an appointment with TLC inspection next week. The car is good just the front bumper and grill have cracks. Will i pass?

Also the hood tip is slightly bent.
You should post this in the NYC forum. They are all TLC drivers and can tell you from experience.

Looks okay to me. No safety issue regarding the bumper if it’s not damaged, it’s only the bumper “cover” that took on some cosmetic damage, nothing that causes a safety issue.

Most probably you should be fine in regards to that damage. I was there a few weeks ago and they failed a guy for fender damage. The damage wasn't very bad.
Just go for the inspection and see what happens . If you fail then repair the damage. They give you 4 attempts to pass .
Make sure all of your lights work even the ones over the rear license plate.
