The third brake light does have to be working in order to pass inspection in North Carolina, according to Brian Phillips at Blacks Tire and Auto on Oleander Drive in Wilmington, which performs inspections.

Here is a link to the state safety and emissions inspection regulations manual: https://connect.ncdot.gov/business/dmv/dmv%20documents/safety%20and%20emissions%20inspection%20regulations%20manual.pdf

    The third break light on cars was a safety feature required by the Federal Government. In light of this, I believe NC should require these lights to be in working order. The only way to do this is to require these lights to be in working order when a vehicle is inspected.
