Welcome to the VAA
The Virginia Automotive Association is a trade association representing the tire and auto repair industry. Established in 1965, our purpose is to advance and safeguard the business interests of our members; to promote harmony, goodwill, and understanding among our members; to encourage the exchange of ideas and technical knowledge among our members; and to provide education, training, and support to our members.
VAA members are independently owned retail businesses in the automotive industry, including tire stores, repair facilities, service stations (with bays), muffler and exhaust shops, and collision centers. Most of our members' locations are family-owned businesses, and the automotive business they run is all they do. Through VAA, our members have access to employee training, educational seminars, communication, and networking. When looking for an automotive facility, we hope you'll choose a VAA member.
Safety Inspection fee increases to $20 on July 1
The VAA and VGMC lobbied support for HB 2514, sponsored by Delegate Tim Hugo, to increase the safey inspection fee from $16 to $20. The bill passed both the House and Senate, and was signed by Governor Northam; the increase takes effect on July 1. A Bulletin from the Department of State Police will be mailed to inspection stations the last week of June.
