VA State Safety Inspection – Herndon, VA

Every Herndon, VA vehicle registered to drive or travel has to have a VA State Safety Inspection performed annually and the owner display a passing decal on the windshield. The only exceptions are if an auto or motorcycle is registered as an antique. If your vehicle is due for its yearly safety inspection, bring it in to Wiygul at one of our Virginia automotive clinics.

After you bring it in, each technician performs a full work-up based on the Virginia DMV safety checklist. He begins with the brakes and parking brake to ensure it stops according to the manufacturer’s design. Then, he inspects the steering and suspension, and the rims, tires, and wheels to make certain it is safe for highways and local streets.

The rest of the checklist is designed to ensure the personal safety of the driver and passengers in all weather. The technician carefully examines the following 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

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

We know you can take your Herndon, VA vehicle to any garage in the state for its annual VA State Safety Inspection. What we encourage you to do first is to look at our company slogan again. It was not group-tested by some ad agency, but instead came from a satisfied, fifteen-year customer.

After several visits to one of Clinics, she quickly came to appreciate not just the superior inspection and repair services, but the personal customer service as well. When she is asked about reliable auto servicing over the last decade, she replies with, “Try Wiyguls, you will love them.” Once we heard that, “Try Us, You Will Love Us,” became the only slogan possible for our clinics in Virginia and Maryland.

Every Wiygul Automotive Clinic is open Monday through Saturday for your convenience. We perform inspections on every major automotive brand, foreign and domestic. Each VA State Safety Inspection is done on a first-come, first-serve basis for every Herndon, VA vehicle. We work quickly to get you back on the road, but there are wait times, and you should plan to block out the entire afternoon or morning. The shortest wait time is usually in the middle two weeks of each month. Call us today at 866-702-8050 to find the Clinic nearest you.
