Did you know the state of Virginia requires annual inspections of ALL motor vehicles? This includes commercial vehicles, transport vehicles, motorcycles, trailers, and semi-trailers. Annual inspections are required every twelve months, from the month of initial inspection or purchase date. Official inspection stickers are to be displayed on the windshield or designated area of all Virginia registered vehicles. Inspection stickers expire on the last day of the month without regard to weekday or weekend. If your vehicle is registered in Virginia, you are responsible for maintaining a current approval sticker. Reminders are not mailed. “Inspect early-Avoid delays”.
