All vehicles registered in Alexandria, VA must have an annual VA State Safety Inspection and display their inspection decal on the windshield. The only exception to this safety requirement is if a vehicle is registered as an antique. If your vehicle is due for its annual safety inspection, drive it into one of our Virginia automotive clinics today.
We know you can take your Alexandria, VA auto to any garage licensed by the state for its annual VA State Safety Inspection. What Wiygul Automotive encourages you to do is examine the slogan that was not developed by an ad agency, but rather handed to us from a very satisfied, fifteen-year-long customer, and then makes that decision.
After finding our Clinic nearest to her, this customer quickly came to love not just the superior repair and inspection services, but the honest and personal customer service as well. After that, every time she was asked about a reliable auto repair shop, she replied with, “Try Wiyguls, you will love them.” Once we heard that, “Try Us, You Will Love Us,” became the only possible slogan for our clinics in Virginia and we have used it ever since.
When you bring in your vehicle, our technicians run it through the checklist provided by the Virginia DMV. We start with the brakes and parking brake to ensure safe stops. Then, we inspect your rims, tires, wheels, steering, and suspension to make certain your vehicle is safe for driving on local streets and highways.
The rest of the inspection is designed to ensure the personal safety of you and your passengers. Our technicians carefully check the functionality of:
- Signal device
- Headlights and other lights
- Windshield and other glass
- Windshield wiper/defroster
- Fuel System
- Exhaust system
- Driver’s seat
- Hood and area under the hood
- Airbag and airbag readiness light
- Floor pan
- The left and right side of the driver's seat doors
Finally, we make certain your rear license plate is secure and then remove the old inspection sticker and replace it with the new one on your windshield. In addition to the safety issues, our technicians also examine the air pollution control system for all 1973 and later models. For everything listed above, the inspection fee for motor vehicles, trailers (to include semi-trailers), and RVs is $16. The fee per motorcycle is $12.
