Quick Repairs for Cars That Fail Inspection in Ashland, Virginia


In the state of Virginia, cars that fail inspection have 15 days to remedy problems before being re-inspected. At Ashland, we provide all cars that fail inspection with a comprehensive report of necessary repairs, with financing plans to ensure that you don’t miss the deadline. Remember, if your car was rejected for an issue that violates state law, a rejection sticker does NOT protect you from being pulled over!
