Testing For Car Emissions in Springfield, VA | Wiygul Automotive Clinic

emissions 01-11-18 Share:

The Commonwealth of Virginia had made car emissions for Springfield, VA, drivers a priority since 1970.  Since car emissions continue to be the single largest source of airborne pollutants in Northern Virginia, the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) inspection program, called Air Check Virginia, was implemented in 1982 to combat growing air quality issues.

Car emissions in Springfield, VA impact local water quality throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed as well as contributing to accumulating ozone in the atmosphere, the main ingredient in ground-level smog. Implementation of On-Board Diagnostics testing in vehicles manufactured since 1996, and the On-Road, or Remote Sensing, Emissions program, have been important mechanisms in reducing vehicle pollution from car emissions in Springfield, VA, and throughout the Washington, D.C., area.

The Clean Air Act Amendments passed in 1990 by Congress mandates the Virginia DEQ to improve car emissions inspection. Springfield, VA, drivers can take advantage of the  convenience, efficiency and reliability built into the vehicle emissions process by visiting the state approved inspection station at Wiygul Automotive Clinic.

Vehicle owners in the counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, Prince William, Stafford and the cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Manassas, and Manassas Park, as well as regular commuters and federal vehicles, are required to have a car emissions inspection every other year. Look for notification via mail from the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) six to eight weeks before your vehicle is due for inspection.

After a typical 20 minute inspection, including a visual smoke test, an emissions control equipment inspection, and, where present,  a test of the on-board diagnostic computer system,  you will receive a vehicle inspection report.
