VA State Inspection

VA State Inspection

Barton’s Auto Service has been a licensed Virginia State Inspector since 1977.  Mr. Barton has a thorough knowledge of the Virginia State Inspection Manual, and he will be glad to answer any questions you may have concerning inspection law.

Barton’s Auto Service is a trustworthy facility for a good inspection to ensure the safety of your vehicle.   Our aim is to give you an honest inspection.  We will explain when your vehicle is in violation, and when something is borderline (but still legal).  When repairs are necessary, we will offer you advice and explain the options for getting it repaired.  You are free to have the repairs done however and wherever you like.

Keep in mind, if you do have the car serviced somewhere else or if you fix it yourself, be sure to return to us to get your actual sticker in place of the rejection sticker.  It will only cost you a dollar for us to upgrade you to legal status.  Any other garage will have to reinspect your car for the full amount all over again.

Barton’s Auto Service is also the home of the “no wait” inspection.  We prioritize customers needing an inspection above all other work.  Ifhoodup you have to wait to get a sticker, it’s only because someone else who needs an inspection got in line before you.  We inspect on a first-come-first-serve basis.  Also, Mr. Barton’s years of experience at inspecting makes his routine go quickly, so your wait time will be minimal.  You are free to watch as we service your car.
