With all due respect, you are wrong and Tam is correct. The FPR's clearly stated intent is to evaluate INSPECTION performance, NOT repair performance! Otherwise, it would not be applicable to Test Only Stations, and, trust me, it's being applied quite heavily in that area.

Of course you are correct here, but WHY the hell should it matter, if the inspection is performed accurately, which is the ONLY publicly-stated inspector quality being allegedly (and I use that term quite loosely) measured?
