Default Inspection Question

Can a truck with no reverse pass inspection or will it show up on the computer diagnostic test? My neighbor says he knows a guy that will pass anything that will pass the comp test, bad tires, small cracks in windshield, etc. I was gonna take it to Auto Zone and have them scan the computer but I dont know if they use the same scans. The airbag light blinks also so I know I have to fix that first. I saw a thread on FRF that will help with that though, I think. I'm having problems finding it again though so I'll look around till I find it and remedy that problem. Any info on the reverse thing would be much appreciated though. I've been out of work for 4 months so I haven't had the money to fix the trans. Hopefully I'll be starting a new job in 2 or 3 weeks and then I'll be able to get the trans replaced or fixed. Till then I can only do silly cosmetic things. the neighbor that told me about the inspection backed into my truck and broke a taillight and that is why I posted the question last week about the new tails(he's replacing them,lol). Otherwise I'm stuck as the inspection is up at the end of march. Thanks Folks!

No, it should not be able to detect that reverse doesn't work unless it's throwing a code of some sort. If it is throwing a code your check engine light should be on...
