Emissions Inspection Herndon VA

Nearly all Herndon, VA vehicles autos, and trucks must pass a VA Emissions Inspection. They are divided into categories determined by which fuel they use, diesel or gasoline. Each successful test result is valid for two years.

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 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer falls into this category while a 1993 Chevrolet CK 1500 is one year outside the cut-off of January 1st 2018. The CK 1500 receives a Waiver from the VA Emissions Inspection for their Herndon, VA vehicle.

1997 and newer model, diesel-powered property-hauling and passenger trucks and autos have to Pass the VA Emissions Inspection if they have a Manufacturer’s Designated Gross Weight Rating of 8,500 pounds or less. If the vehicle is a 1996 molder or older, or if it is heavier than 8,500 pounds, it receives a VA DMV Waiver. These emission inspections are mandatory for all residents in Arlington, Fairfax, Loudon, Prince William, and Stafford Counties who own these trucks and autos as well as residents in the cities of Manassas Park, Manassas, Falls Church, Fairfax, and Alexandria.

Each Wiygul Automotive Clinic performs this inspection as an important part of the excellent service tradition started by our grandfather, James Wiygul, 60 years ago. Right from the start, with his job in automotive, his principle to "Never Lie, Cheat or Steal, Ever" is one that guides us still today.

Twenty years later, Oscar Wiygul Sr. opened our first Automotive Clinic in Alexandria with his wife Sue in 1976. Around here, they usually answer to Dad and Mom, however. Thirty years, and three clinics later, we opened the doors in Herndon. Our clinic here has twelve auto technicians and four service writers to support every vehicle in Herndon, VA with a VA Emissions Inspection that puts them back out on the road quickly and efficiently.

At each of our Wiygul Automotive Clinics, our technicians are trained and experienced to service and test all major automotive brands, domestic and foreign. From now to the end of May, we also offer a $14.00 coupon off every VA Emissions Inspection which you can download at our website. Remember though; we perform Emissions Inspections strictly on a first-come-first-serve basis. The wait for an inspection is usually at its shortest time in the middle two weeks of every month. Even so, you should plan to block out your morning or afternoon.

If you have a question about any inspection or another service, call us at 866-702-8050 today. We are ready to serve at any of our locations in Herndon, Burke, Alexandria, and Reston.
