VA State Safety Inspection – Reston, VA

Every Reston, VA vehicle registered to travel or drive on local and state roads has to have a VA State Safety Inspection performed each year with a passing sticker placed on the windshield. The only exceptions are if a motorcycle or auto is registered as an antique. If your vehicle needs its annual safety inspection, bring it into Wiygul at one of our Virginia locations.

Every technician performs a full workup based on the safety checklist issued by the Virginia DMV. She begins with the brakes and parking brake to ensure they meet manufacturer’s design. Then, she inspects the steering, suspension, tires, rims, and wheels to make certain it is safe for area streets and highways.

The rest of the DMV checklist is designed to ensure the personal safety of the driver and passengers in all weather conditions. We examine each item below for functionality:

  • Signal device
  • Headlights and other lights
  • Mirrors
  • Windshield and other glass
  • Horn
  • Windshield wiper/defroster
  • Fuel System
  • Exhaust system
  • Driver’s seat
  • Hood and area under the hood
  • Seatbelts
  • Airbag and airbag readiness light
  • Floor pan
  • The left and right side of the driver's seat doors

If the vehicle passes, she removes the old inspection sticker and replaces it with a new one. She also makes certain the rear license plate is securely in place. If the auto is a 1973 or newer model, the technician examines the air pollution control system. The safety inspection fee is $12 for motorcycles, and $16 for motor vehicles, trailers (to include semi-trailers), and RVs.

We know you can take your Reston, VA vehicle anywhere in the state for its yearly VA State Safety Inspection. Before you decide, we encourage you to look again at our company slogan. We adopted it from the praise of a satisfied, fifteen-year customer.

After several visits to one of Virginia Clinics, she began telling everybody who asked about a reliable auto repair shop, “Try Wiyguls, you will love them.” Once that comment got back to us, “Try Us, You Will Love Us,” became the only slogan possible for our automotive clinics in Virginia and Maryland.

All of our Wiygul Automotive Clinics are open Monday through Saturday for your convenience, and we perform safety inspections on every major automotive brand, foreign and domestic. Each VA State Safety Inspection is done on a first-come, first-serve basis on each Reston, VA vehicle. We work rapidly to get you back on the road, but there are wait times at each Clinic. You should plan to block out an entire morning or afternoon depending on when you bring in your auto or another vehicle. The shortest wait is usually in the middle two weeks of each month. Call us at 866-702-8050 today with any questions or to find a nearby Clinic.
