Website posted that it closes at 7pm. I arrived at 5:30pm after sitting in heavy traffic to get there only to be told, unapologetically and rudely by the gas station cashier, that the inspections guy left for the day. Wish they stuck to the posted hours. So I back the next day and got my inspection done. Despite the inconvenience of the previous day, in the end, the inspections tech was very friendly and fast.

About This Deal
Proper car maintenance will help a vehicle live longer, just as proper muscle maintenance will help you save a car from drowning. Be a hero with today's Groupon: for $21, you get a Virginia-state-mandated vehicle inspection and emissions test at Inspections VA-MD (a $44 value). This deal is valid at Manassas Auto Care.
Inspections VA-MD's 23-step auto inspection and emissions test evaluate cars to confirm they're road ready, air-friendly, and conform to Virginia's emissions standards. During the 30-minute process, technicians run through a long list of checks starting with the brake system, which they scour for defective drums, leaks, and worn disk pads that could lead to embarrassing slide-bys in the fast-food drive-thru.
After employees examine the steering and suspension and test the wheel and axle alignment, cars pop their hoods to let auto inspectors scrutinize the power-steering belt for tension or wear and assess the levels of brake and power-steering fluid. Motor medics also fiddle with headlight switches and signal devices, quiz the air bag for its reaction time, and test the tailpipe or on-board diagnostic computer system for eco-friendly emissions before slapping a new sticker on the car and sending it off to celebrate by crashing into a karaoke bar.
Though Inspections VA-MD sometimes features discounted prices online, this Groupon still provides the best deal available.
