service areas 10-08-18 Share:

Reston, VA auto owners, have two automotive inspection station options to have their auto exhaust system tested. There are the certified emissions inspection stations, located at each Virginia Wiygul Automotive Clinics. A new choice for vehicle owners to use are the RAPIDPASS on-road emissions test sites.

These new RAPIDPASS sites identify each vehicle as it drives past by taking a picture of the license plate and measuring the emissions output in under a second. If the vehicle passes, the owner is mailed the inspection sticker for the windshield. For more information about the RAPIDPASS program; visit the DMV website at www.dmv.virginia.gov.

The RAPIDPASS sites may be quick, but there are only a small number of them in service across Virginia. They cannot be used in inclement weather and have to be closed. Testing at a certified emissions inspection station takes longer than a RAPIDPASS site, but Wiygul Clinic technicians can complete testing in any weather at one of our four Wiygul Clinic locations in Virginia.

Wiygul specialists test each vehicle exhaust system to secure a PASS for each customer. If the car or truck registers as a FAIL, they provide a list of the system components that did not perform to the required specifications and need replacement or repair.

All vehicles divide into two categories based on the fuel they consume: diesel or gasoline.

Diesel-powered passenger and property-carrying cars and trucks that need an emission inspection must be a 1997 model year or more recent. That means a 1998 Subaru needs emissions testing, but a 1996 model does not. Each vehicle also has to have a manufacturer’s designated gross vehicle weight rating of 8,500 pounds or less.

Gasoline-powered passenger and property-carrying cars and trucks that need an inspection must be less than 25 model years before January 1st of the current calendar year. As an example, a 1994 BMW requires inspection in 2018 while a 1993 model does not. The vehicle has to have a manufacturer's designated gross vehicle weight of 10,000 pounds or less.

All Reston, VA vehicle registration records updated automatically regardless of which type of automotive inspection station performs the emissions test. Results normally process within 24 hours. Each inspection is valid for two years from the test date.

Private and commercial vehicles that register emissions FAIL at any inspection station cannot register or process a renewal through the DMV. The only alternative if the vehicle cannot be repaired is when the owner receives a DMV WAIVER for emissions system repair costs that exceed $450.00 which is valid for two years from the original test date.

If your Reston, VA car or truck requires emissions testing, bring it to one of our automotive inspection stations today. To find the nearest Wiygul Automotive Clinic, call us at 866-702-8050.
