Nearly all Reston, VA autos and trucks must pass a VA Emissions Inspection. The VA DMV divides them into categories determined by which fuel they use, diesel or gasoline. Each successful test result is valid for two years. These emission inspections are mandatory for all residents in Arlington, Fairfax, Loudon, Prince William, and Stafford Counties who own these vehicles and the residents of Manassas Park, Manassas, Alexandria, Fairfax, and Falls Church.
Gasoline-powered property-hauling and passenger trucks and autos have to Pass the inspection if they have a Manufacturer’s Designated Gross Weight Rating of 10,000 pounds or less and are a model less than 25 years old from before January 1st of the current calendar year. As an example, a 1994 Toyota Corolla is in this category, but a 1993 Nissan Altima is one year outside the January 1st 2018 cut-off, so it receives a Waiver from the VA Emissions Inspection for this Reston, VA vehicle.
1997 and newer model, diesel-powered property-hauler and passenger autos and trucks have to Pass the VA Emissions Inspection if they also have a Manufacturer’s Designated Gross Weight Rating of 8,500 pounds or less. If the vehicle is a 1996 model or older, or if a newer model is heavier than 8,500 pounds, it receives a Waiver from the DMV.
Wiygul Automotive Clinics proudly perform this inspection as a continuing part of the tradition of service began by James Wiygul, our grandfather, 60 years ago. He started his career in the automotive world with a set of principles, and the most important one, to "Never Lie, Cheat or Steal, Ever," still guides us today.
In 1976, Oscar Wiygul Sr. opened our first Automotive Clinic in Alexandria with his wife, Sue. Despite being the bosses, they still answer to Dad and Mom when they feel like it. Three clinics and thirty years later, we opened the doors to our shop here in Reston.
