There are actually a few different ways to find inspection stations around Centreville, VA. Your best bet would be to look up Wiygul Automotive Clinic and go there. They will do the full test for just 16 dollars as well as inform you of any necessary repairs and answer any other questions that you might have (we’ll let you in on a secret, the state set price for the safety inspection test is 16 dollars, so it will be the same price no matter where you go). All jokes aside though, there are a couple ways to find who is qualified to do the test.
Though there is no actual list of inspection stations posted online, most auto repair shops are qualified as inspection stations. Look for the blue and white sign that lists them as qualified to perform the test. If you do not see it, make sure to ask the technician beforehand if they are certified or the test will not count. This is why it becomes extremely important to stick with a trusted mechanic who has all the proper certifications. At Wiygul Automotive Clinic we have many ASE-trained technicians who can answer any questions you may have about how exactly the test works.
The Virginia DMV website also has a partial list of locations with inspection stations, along with a few listings for Centreville, VA. If you’re current favorite mechanic shop does not perform the service, you can take a look at their list for other locations in the area. Just remember that if you do try to use this method, the Virginia DMV list is not always up to date. Our final suggestion for finding inspection stations is the age old method of asking a friend. Everybody needs to have a safety test done for their car each year, so almost anybody that you ask will know of a place that they recommend. If all else fails, just trust your friends and try using the inspection stations they use.
