Virginia Mobile State Safety Inspections

Our inspections, and our business, had to pass Virginia State Police background checks and must follow the State Police’s procedures to the letter. In the end, we’re here to do one thing—make this process as painless as can be. VTA Valet’s mobile safety inspection allows you to meet state standards whether you’re at work, at home, or on the go.

  • Standards are set by the Commonwealth of Virginia
  • Due every year
  • Takes about 25 minutes per vehicle (issues with a vehicle, like having difficulty removing a wheel, can add time)

– Customers can reduce wait times by pre-approving up to $30 of minor repairs that we can do immediately while the vehicle is in the inspection bay, should they be needed.

  • If your car does not pass, a Virginia Tire & Auto sales associate will review the reasons with you

– You will have 15 days to make repairs and have your car re-inspected for $1 at this location.

– The item(s) that did not pass the original inspection will be re-inspected. If another issue is visible (possibly happening after the original inspection, e.g. a mirror now hanging, or a cracked windshield) the car could fail the re-inspection.

– If you take your car somewhere else for re-inspection, you will have to pay the full amount and your car will be subject to a complete safety inspection once again.

– Note: Virginia law prohibits any inspections while your car is in line. So even if the reason it will not pass the inspection is plainly visible, your car still has to be pulled into the bay—the only place official inspections can take place.

– We offer free loaner cars should you need one.

Virginia Mobile Emissions Testing

  • Standards are set by the Commonwealth of Virginia
  • Due every other year
  • Takes about 15 minutes per vehicle (1996 model year cars and older take longer)
  • If your car does not pass, we cannot do repairs on the spot—emissions repairs take some time to perform

– You will have 14 days to schedule repairs and be re-tested.

– There is no charge for your first re-test at the same location. If you go somewhere else, you will have to pay the full inspection fee again.

– We offer free loaner cars should you need one.
