An emission inspection must be performed every two years at Wiygul Automotive Clinic, a permitted emissions inspection station. Most emission inspections in Fairfax, VA should take about 20 minutes or less, and the inspector issues a vehicle emission inspection report after the appropriate tests are performed.
More about Emissions Inspections and your Local Inspection Station
A vehicle's emission inspection date is based on the registration deadline, and the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will notify owners six to eight weeks before an emission inspection is due in Fairfax, VA. DMV can complete vehicle registration only after the emission inspection has been passed or a waiver has been issued.
If the vehicle does not pass the emission inspection, necessary repairs must be made. This may be done at the same Fairfax, VA facility - like Wiygul Automotive Clinic - that performed the emission inspection. The vehicle then must be re-inspected, which is free if performed within 14 days at the facility that performed the initial emission inspection. A vehicle that does not pass the emission re-inspection may be eligible for a waiver only if appropriate repairs were done at a Virginia certified emissions repair facility. For more information on scheduling your emission inspection in Fairfax, VA, please contact Wiygul Automotive Clinic.
