Virginia drivers are likely to pay more for vehicle safety inspections. The General Assembly has given preliminary approval to legislation that will raise the price of a yearly car inspection from $16 to $20. The House and Senate have both approved slightly different versions of the legislation with bipartisan support. Advocates said the fee hasn’t gone up for more than a decade and the increase will help make sure mechanics are fairly compensated. Opponents of the measure said the current fee is fair and a 25 percent increase is too much.
