Virginia State Inspection Sticker Enforcement Important for Driver Safety and Lawful Vehicle Operation

inspections 01-09-18 Share:

New to Virginia? Before operating a vehicle in the state, that vehicle must pass an annual safety inspection and display a valid safety inspection sticker to mark its inspection passing and completion. If you drive your vehicle without an inspection sticker, you may be ticketed by law enforcement, while violating Virginia inspection laws may result in a fine and be posted to your driving record.

A Virginia inspection approval sticker also gives a visual reminder to the driver when the vehicle needs to be re-inspected, which aids in keeping your vehicle well-maintained and the driver safe. Inspection approval stickers expire the last day of the month indicated on the sticker, regardless of whether it is a weekday or weekend. There are no extensions for safety inspection stickers; if your vehicle's inspection sticker is not current, you are required to have your vehicle inspected as soon as you enter Virginia state lines. Vehicles owned and operated by persons on active duty with the U.S. Armed Forces who are Virginia residents stationed outside of the state when the sticker expires, may operate those vehicles on Virginia highways while on leave, as long as those vehicles display a valid inspection sticker issued by another state.

If your vehicle is rejected for an approval sticker during inspection, that rejection sticker is valid for 15 days. The Virginia Safety Division issues replacement stickers for lost or damaged inspection approval stickers under certain conditions, without requiring the vehicle to be re-inspected.
