The majority of private Herndon, VA automobiles have to process through auto emissions testing. Each one must receive a PASS rating before completing registration in a Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) office. The guidelines for each car and truck depend on what fuel it consumes, along with its age and weight.

Diesel-powered – Passenger and property-carrying vehicles with the model year of 1997 or more recent require inspection. A 1999 Ford truck meets the requirement. The same vehicle, however, must also have a manufacturer’s designated gross vehicle weight of 8,500 pounds or less as well.

Gasoline-powered – Passenger and property-carrying vehicles with a model year less than 25 years old of January 1st of the current year require inspection. A 1995 Hyundai, for example, is only 23 years from January 1st, 2018. It must also have a manufacturer’s designated gross vehicle weight rating of 10,000 pounds or less.

If cars or trucks in either category are too old, or too heavy, they are issued a WAIVER. These Herndon, VA vehicles are often commercial vehicles and process through a DMV office with no auto emissions testing.

Cars and trucks that receive a PASS grade from one of our Wiygul Automotive Clinics meet Virginia requirements and do not need a new inspection for two years. Wiygul emissions specialists perform auto emissions testing every day at our Herndon and other VA clinics on all major automotive brands, on a first-come-first-serve basis. Experience and customer feedback over the last few years informs us that the waiting time for emissions testing is often shorter in the middle two weeks of each month.

So what happens in an auto emissions test? For every Herndon, VA car and truck, the end result is to reduce the level of carbon monoxide and other pollutants released into the air, and can affect all Virginia residents. The testing standards were determined and implemented by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and the DMV. Thanks to a new effort by the DEQ, your next test might happen on your morning commute.

The DEQ, working with an area business, established remote sensing stations. As you drive through one, it identifies your car or truck, and measures the emissions. The resulting ratings are ‘clean screen,’ ‘gross polluter’ or somewhere between the two. If your rating is ‘clean screen,’ you’ll receive a waiver in the mail for your next inspection if your current one expires soon.

Any other result and you receive a notice for inspection in the mail. A complete inspection at a Wiygul Automotive Clinic analyzes your emissions system and one of our mechanics can bring it in line with Virginia requirements. If you have received this notice recently, or are due for your next emissions test, contact us at 866-702-8050 for the location nearest you.
