Vehicle Inspection Report

The Vehicle Inspection Report (VIR) is the document explaining the results of emission test. It is printed at the conclusion of every inspection and given to the motorist. It lists the Inspection result; PASS - FAIL - ABORT - REJECTED - WAIVER, and explains the reasons for each.

The VIR is designed to provide the motorist information needed to understand the results of the inspection and also provides helpful information on what to do if the vehicle Fails.

The first line of the VIR lists the inspection result - PASS, FAIL, etc., - in large type. The second row lists details about the Private Inspection Facility - Station Name, Address, Inspector Number.

The next row contains information about your vehicle such as the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), Make, Model, Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR), Fuel type and Odometer mileage. Vehicles in model years 1996 - 2006 with a GVWR greater than 8,500 lbs. receive a Weight Waiver, instead of a test, at the time of inspection. These vehicles do not have a functioning OBDII system and can not be inspected.

The Test Details row is next and contains items like the test date, test beginning and end times and test number, which is how many times your vehicle has been inspected in this cycle.

The next row contains the result of the On Board Diagnostic II emission inspection (OBDII). The items listed are the state and federal requirements that must be checked at every inspection.

The last row provides useful information for the motorist based on the result of the inspection. If the inspection result is a Pass the information reminds you to please renew your vehicle registration. If the result is a Fail the information provides information on what you can do to get your vehicle repaired, your right to chose your own repair facility and how to get a re-inspection.

If the result is a Fail the motorist will also receive additional helpful information in addition to the VIR. This includes the Ten closest Recognized Repair facilities, vehicle repair check list for your repair technician, and important information on what to do now that your vehicle has failed.
