When you have your car inspection in Fairfax, VA, the Commonwealth-approved inspector is required to strictly follow the legal mandates of the Virginia Motor Vehicle Safety Inspection Program as outlined in The Required Official Annual Motor Vehicle Inspection Manual.

According the the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (VA DMV) "your vehicle must pass an annual safety inspection and display a valid safety inspection sticker before it can be operated on Virginia roadways." Before you can register your vehicle in Virginia, the DMV requires it pass the annual 24-point car inspection in Fairfax, VA. In addition, vehicles registered in Fairfax County are included in the Air Check Virginia emissions inspection program operated by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) in Northern Virginia. Your car inspection station in Fairfax, VA will electronically update your DMV vehicle record with your car inspection and emissions test results so your records will remain current and your vehicle will continue to be safe to operate on the roadways.
