    What You Need to Know About Virginia's Vehicle Inspection Laws

    Last updated 5 years ago

    The state of Virginia requires that all cars pass an annual safety inspection and an emissions inspection every two years. Without both of these inspections, you may not be able to renew your new or used Mazda vehicle registration, and you may even have to pay a fine. Read on to learn more about Virginia’s Vehicle Inspection Laws.

    Items Checked During Safety Inspection

    During a vehicle safety inspection in Virginia, your Mazda will be thoroughly inspected to make sure that it is safe. First, the brakes and parking brake are examined for damaged or missing parts. The headlights and signal devices are also inspected to ensure that they are aimed properly and in good working condition. The steering, suspension, and exhaust systems in your Mazda will also be looked at to be sure that all of the parts are functioning properly. Other important components such as the tires, wheels, mirrors, and horn are looked over as well.

    New Vehicle Safety Inspection Waver

    If you buy a new Mazda in Virginia, you won’t have to get the vehicle inspected for the first 12 months after purchase, as Mazda has already inspected it in accordance with Virginia’s requirements.

    Biennial Emissions Inspection

    In addition to the safety inspection, Virginia requires that some cars pass emissions inspections every two years. If you take your Mazda in for an emissions inspection, mechanics will check the on-board computer to make sure that all emissions-relating components are working properly. If anything isn’t working, the owner of the car must make the necessary repairs before passing the emissions inspection.

    To prepare for the safety and emissions inspections required in the state of Virginia, come to Brown’s Chantilly Mazda. Our Mazda dealership has years of experience preparing vehicles to pass Virginia’s inspections. Call us at (888) 612-1062 or visit our website to schedule a service appointment for your Mazda vehicle.
