VA Code § 46.2-1183.1 (2013) What's This?

§ 46.2-1183.1. Registration extension for satisfaction of emissions inspection requirements.

A. Upon request by an applicant, the Commissioner may grant a one-month extension of the registration period of a vehicle if the vehicle registration has been withheld pursuant to § 46.2-1183 and the current registration period will expire within the calendar month. No extension may be granted for an expired vehicle registration and only one extension may be granted for any one vehicle registration period.

If an applicant who is granted an extension under this section also requests and is granted an extension under § 46.2-752.1, the extension granted under this section shall run concurrently with the extension granted under § 46.2-752.1. No combination of extensions granted under this section and under § 46.2-752.1 shall extend a vehicle's registration period for more than one month for any one vehicle registration period.

For each extension granted, the Commissioner shall collect (i) a $10 administrative fee and (ii) a fee sufficient for a one-month registration period for the vehicle, as calculated under subsection B of § 46.2-694. Neither fee shall apply, however, if the applicant has been granted an extension under § 46.2-752.1 with respect to the same registration period and has paid the fees provided under that section.

On receipt of such fees, the Commissioner shall issue a registration card and, if applicable, decals indicating the month of expiration of the vehicle registration. Upon passing an emissions inspection or being issued an emissions inspection waiver, the applicant may elect to renew the vehicle registration. For such renewal, the Commissioner shall collect the appropriate registration renewal fee and issue a registration card and, if applicable, decals. The renewal shall take effect the first day succeeding the month in which the registration extension expires. When offered by the Commissioner, the applicant may elect to renew the vehicle registration for multiple years, pursuant to § 46.2-646.

B. All administrative fees imposed and collected by the Commissioner under this section shall be paid into the state treasury and set aside as a special fund to be used to meet the expenses of the Department.
