Locating an Inspection Station

Inspection station sign

The Safety Division receives numerous calls and emails requesting a list of inspection stations for a particular area.

The Department of State Police is unable to recommend one station over another.

Unfortunately, there is no list available online of inspection stations in Virginia. The number of inspection stations changes daily as stations become inactive for lack of an inspector, go out of business, are suspended for disciplinary reasons, and as new stations are appointed, reinstated, etc. Currently, there are approximately 4,200 stations statewide.

Generally, all new car dealerships perform inspections. Many garages that repair vehicles are licensed to perform inspections. They will display a large white sign with blue lettering designating them as an official inspection station. Many businesses advertise inspection services online.

If you are still unable to locate an inspection station, you can contact your nearest Safety Division Area Office  using the map above for further assistance.

Replacement of Stolen/Lost/Damaged Safety Inspection Approval Stickers

Under certain conditions, the Safety Division issues replacements for lost, stolen, and/or damaged safety inspection approval stickers without reinspection. This process allows the Safety Division to serve Virginia residents affected by unfortunate circumstances without compromising the purpose of the Inspection Program. To replace your inspection sticker, contact the closest Safety Office.


Duplicate/Replacement copies of Vehicle Inspection Receipts are only available through the Virginia State Police, Safety Division.
