How Often Do You Have to Get Your Car Inspected in VA?

In Virginia, you must get your car inspected every twelve months. If you look on your vehicle's license plate, you will see a sticker indicating the month and year in which your vehicle's inspection and registration are due.

Is There a Grace Period for Expired Inspection Stickers in VA?

Unfortunately, there is no grace period for expired inspection stickers. If you are a Winchester driver whose vehicle's inspection is about to expire, be sure to visit our VA state inspection station to get this inspection completed before your sticker expires.

Will My Car Fail Inspection if the "Check Engine" Light is On?

Not necessarily. Your "Check Engine" light often signals that there is an issue going on under the hood. While this means that you will likely fail an inspection due to this light being on, the light itself does not necessarily mean that you will fail the inspection. We'll take the necessary steps to diagnose any issues to let you know if any additional maintenance is necessary for your car to pass inspection.
