The State of Virginia requires that all vehicles have a car inspection for safety at a licensed inspection station every 12 months. But if you’re looking for your local vehicle inspection station in the Pulaski, VA area, it can be hard to know where to look and who you can trust. Also, did you know:
- The DOT doesn’t send out a reminder when it’s time for a car inspection.
- There is no grace period even for out of state vehicles.
- Department of Transportation won’t give you an extension, even if you’re in the military on active duty.
- If the state inspection sticker is missing, expired, or invalid, you risk getting pulled over, fined, and you won’t be able to renew your car’s registration.
Not only is an annual vehicle inspection required by the State of Virginia, but it’s also an important part of maintaining your automobile and identifying any issues before they become a safety risk.
However, taking your car in for a safety inspection in Virginia can be aggravating or intimidating. It can be confusing since the state inspection requires that everything on your car be in safe operating condition. Most people have had a bad experience where they weren’t really sure if their vehicle really needed the repairs that were identified or if the shop was holding their car hostage in exchange for an inspection sticker. You might not even realize that you don’t have to have the repairs performed by the state inspection station that performed the initial inspection.
