And in Virginia, just FYI, if one has the car registered as an antique vehicle (and it must be the same age as for the emissions exemption before one can do that) there is no safety inspection, either.
I have to believe that the legislators in the Virginia General Assembly looked at the loss data on antique vehicles as a result of safety failures, which is almost zero, and crafted the law accordingly. One of the reasons that antique/vintage auto insurance is so inexpensive, even for very expensive cars with agreed value coverage, is because the loss rates are so very, very low. Most owners of these vehicles baby them or don't drive them if they're not roadworthy.
