CHARLESTON, WV (LOOTPRESS) – In further recognition that emergency regulations for Covid-19 are being relaxed, West Virginians will once again be required to have their motor vehicles inspected on October 1.
Governor Jim Justice signed the executive order lifting his previous emergency order that suspended the requirement for annual vehicle inspections in the state.
Justice explained that lifting inspection requirements temporarily was in response to the state of emergency he declared because of Covid in March 2020.
The newest order reinstates the requirement for annual inspections.
The inspection program has been controversial among state lawmakers with many legislators saying they advocate permanent removal of the requirement.
