Keep in mind that some areas of the state are also required to pass an emissions inspection. Suppose your vehicle is registered in one of these counties or cities. In that case, your car is subject to an emissions test: Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, Prince William, or Stafford, and Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Manassas, or Manassas Park. Exemptions may apply for both inspections, so we encourage you to reach out to our team if you have any questions.

Details of the Inspection Process
So, what exactly gets checked during the Virginia state inspection? Several components inside and outside the car and under the hood are thoroughly examined for operability and usability. Major performance systems are inspected, such as the brakes, fuel system, steering, suspension, defroster, and windshield wipers. On the vehicle’s exterior, the head and tail lights, tires, wheels and rims, mirrors, and windshield are checked. Inside the cabin, components like the driver’s seat, horn, vehicle doors, airbags, and airbag readiness lights are looked at. We recommend looking at such components before having the official state inspection performed to avert receiving a failing grade. Also, pay attention to how your vehicle runs or any lit dashboard lights; if something seems off or if a warning light is illuminated, your vehicle may not pass. If it does not pass, you will receive a report of what it is specifically that failed.
