Robot Inspection
Simply queue up your team for Robot Inspection immediately after you check-in and find your Pit table. You can find the checklist here
http://www.roboticseducation.org/documents/2013/06/inspection-checklist-vrc.pdf

The things that most often cause a re-inspection:

Being over 18x18x18
No Team Number License Plate
No license plate holder
No 9V battery. This will cause your robot to reset during competition if you draw too much current.
Competition software template not loaded
Sharp edges
Protruding axles or likewise which risk entanglement
