Kaine's budget plan would change car inspections to every two years

By Julian Walker

December 18, 2007


Virginians would be required to have their cars inspected every two years instead of annually under a $78 billion state budget for the next two years proposed Monday by Gov. Timothy M. Kaine.

The governor's spending plan does not raise taxes but boosts the $20 fee on drivers who renew their licenses every five years to $30.

That increase, however, was coupled with a cut in the overall cost of car inspections. Kaine proposed that the new biennial inspections should cost $20 - a savings for drivers who now pay $15 a year to make sure their cars are safe to drive.

Default 2 year inspections

Great News that every year I will not have to beg and plead with my car repair shop to do an inspection for me. It seems if there is no way for these mechanics to make money, they simply don't want to get involved with car inspections. I have found Firestone to be helpful...IF...you are bringing in the vehicle for other problems and not just a car inspection. I think it is stupid(but what do you expect from Richmond?) that we are required to have yearly car inspections. Now we are moving into the 21st century I am also pleased with dropping those stupid city/county stickers also. Sounds like we now have democrats running the show...finally!!!!!!
