The government of the Commonwealth of Virginia authorized
PASS program in order to make Air Check Virginia
more convenient for its citizens and more effective at improving air quality.
PASS Virginia is the easiest and most convenient way to complete your Air Check Virginia
emissions inspection requirement for Virginia motor vehicle registration
PASS Virginia uses advanced RAPIDPASS systems
to measure vehicle emissions while the vehicle is driven on the road.
Simply drive your vehicle through a RAPID
PASS system at a RAPIDPASS location
on your next trip to the store, school or work to have your vehicle’s exhaust emissions remotely tested.
Do this at least 120 days before your vehicle registration expires to ensure timely qualification of your vehicle and delivery of your
RAPIDPASS qualification notice
Very low on-road exhaust emissions qualify your vehicle
for the program and enable you to complete your required Air Check Virginia emissions inspection on-line without having to visit a
traditional inspection station
Up to 30% of vehicles subject to
Air Check Virginia emissions
inspection may complete their requirement via the RAPID
PASS Virginia program.
