Emissions Inspection – Burke VA

Nearly all trucks and autos and trucks on our roads and highways have to pass a VA Emissions Inspection. This is the case for most Burke, VA vehicles unless they fall outside the categories determined by the VA Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). These truck and auto categories are divided by which fuel they use, diesel or gasoline. Each vehicle must pass the inspection which is valid for two years.

Diesel-powered property-hauling and passenger trucks and autos with a manufacturer’s Designated Gross Weight Rating of 8,500 pounds or less and are 1997 or newer models have to Pass. If the vehicle is heavier than that or it is a 1996 model of older, then it receives a Waiver from the VA DMV.

Gasoline-powered property-hauling and passenger trucks and autos also need 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 Ford Aerostar falls into this category while a 1993 Ford CF8000 Box Truck is one year outside the cut-off of January 1st 2018. The Box Truck receives a Waiver from the VA Emissions Inspection for their Burke, VA vehicle.

These are mandatory requirements all residents in Arlington, Fairfax, Loudon, Prince William, and Stafford Counties or the cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Manassas, and Manassas Park who own these trucks and autos.

At Wiygul Automotive Clinics, performing this inspection is an important part of continuing our family and business traditions of excellent service. Our grandfather, James Wiygul started it 60 years ago with his first position in the automotive industry. His decision to "Never Lie, Cheat or Steal, Ever" his suppliers, customers or anyone else is a principle that still guides us 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. A decade later, we opened our shop here in Burke. We now have dozens of auto technicians and service writers to support every Burke, VA vehicle with a VA Emissions Inspection that quickly and efficiently puts them back out on the road.

All of our Wiygul Automotive Clinics test and service all major automotive brands, domestic and foreign. Through the end of May, we offer a $14.00 coupon off every VA Emissions Inspection which you can download from our website. Keep in mind, the wait for an Emissions Inspection is usually at its lowest in the middle two weeks of every month. We perform the inspections strictly on a first-come-first-serve basis, so block out your morning or afternoon when planning for it.
