How To Prepare Your Car For A Virginia State Inspection In Centreville, VA

Pre-checking your Centreville vehicle can save time and money for a Virginia state inspection at Wiygul Automotive Clinic

service areas 04-07-18 Share:

When it comes time to have your yearly Virginia state inspection done, some drivers like to do a quick pre-check to give themselves a good chance of passing the test on the first visit. If you would like to try this yourself, it can save you time in the long run from having to come in to the shop multiple times, and it will also save us time from having to check your car multiple times (not that we mind). When it could save you time and money though, many people like to go that extra mile.

The best way to prepare for a Virginia state inspection is to go through a checklist manually ahead of time. This checklist will cover most of what the test will look for.

  1. Check to see if seat belts, doors, and driver’s seat adjustments are all working.
  2. Are your lights all working (including turn signals and brake lights)?
  3. Check tire pressure and wear.
  4. Do the horn and mirrors all work correctly?
  5. Are windshield, wipers, and windows all working as intended?
  6. Check your engine fluids.
  7. Does steering work alright?
  8. How is the fuel and exhaust system?

These are the main points that we will cover during a test, so if you get an idea of what is wrong ahead of time, you shouldn’t be surprised by the results. Also, this is a great way to check if your mechanic is telling you the truth after performing a Virginia state inspection for you. Once you find a trusted mechanic, you won’t really need to check yourself if you don’t feel like it. Again, this list is only for those few super zealous car people. A full test like this helps to keep Centreville, VA cars on the road for as long as possible.

If you have any more questions about how the Virginia state inspection works in Centreville, VA, just give us a call. We love talking to new people and look forward to hearing from you.
