“Can the auto shop write a letter for the Inspection Station certifying the vehicle is roadworthy?”

“Dear PoPville,

I recently failed the DC inspection due to the check engine light being on. I have an old Volvo, and even though the auto shop did a full check and reset the sensors, the light turned on again shortly after driving off.

This is a recurring issue with my vehicle and the auto shops in DC have never been able to keep it off for more than a day – basically its a malfunctioning light even though nothing is wrong with the vehicle.

Any suggestions on how to deal with this issue? Can the auto shop write a letter for the Inspection Station certifying the vehicle is roadworthy? Thanks!”
