Safety Inspections: What You Need to Know

The Commonwealth of Virginia requires drivers to have their vehicles - cars, trucks, and motorcycles -- pass a safety inspection every year. Without a valid safety inspection sticker on the vehicle's windshield, you can get a ticket with a fine.
The vehicle safety inspection is looking for any issues that could create hazards for you as a driver. We review the major mechanical systems and items that help you avoid an accident, including the following:

  • brakes
  • all exterior lights and turn signals
  • wipers/windows
  • tires
  • steering/suspension
  • fuel and exhaust systems
  • seat belts
  • all mirrors
The maximum fee for a Virginia Safety Inspection is $16.00 for passenger vehicles, $12.00 for motorcycles, and $51.00 for tractor-trailers.

Some states require regular safety inspections and/or emissions inspections on cars and trucks. At Forest Brook Automotive, we are well-equipped and trained to perform these inspections. Our technicians can also perform multi-point inspections on your vehicles as needed.

These are some of the inspection services we offer.

    I took my car in today for an oil change and general maintenance and got amazing service, as always. The staff is exceptionally friendly and honest about their service. I love feeing confident that I am not being taken advantage of when I bring my car to the Waterlick Garage. Also there is a Starbucks within 2 minutes waking distance, which is a great place to wait while they service your car.
