After the inspection is complete you’ll either get a new safety sticker, dated for the same month for the following year, or a rejection sticker on your vehicle.

If you receive a rejection sticker you will be told why you have failed and provided with a list of the failing items along with an explanation. The rejection sticker is valid for 15 days during which you are entitled to receive up to 2 re-inspections for a fee of $1.00.

VA Emissions Inspections

Your vehicle will also need a state emissions inspection. If your gas-powered vehicle is less than 25 years old, or a model year before 1997 for a diesel, you'll need an emissions test. A simple tailpipe test will be done. This measures the emissions that your vehicle puts out. The maximum inspection fee is $28. If the vehicle fails the inspection, the vehicle is eligible for ONE free retest at the original emissions inspection station within 14 calendar days of the Initial inspection.
