Some states require regular safety inspections and/or emissions inspections on cars and trucks. At Progressive Automotive & Tire, 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.


VA State Inspection Station
Vehicles in Virginia must undergo an annual safety inspection, and eligible vehicles in qualifying areas require emissions testing before vehicle registration and every 2 years after that. In some cases, an emissions test extension is granted. New residents are subject to the same requirements, unless your vehicle has undergone an emissions inspection in a qualified state within the last 12 months. Progressive Automotive & Tire is a VA state inspection station.
