In the State of VA, there is a way to help defend a speeding charge--speedometer calibration. Dewitt’s Automotive Center invites drivers in Windsor, Suffolk and Smithfield, VA, as well as surrounding areas to call us now at (757) 242-9444 for more information on speedometer calibrations. Since 1995, our ASE-certified technicians have been performing speedometer calibrations; let us handle yours.
When you bring your car to Dewitt’s Automotive Center for a speedometer calibration, our technicians will hook your vehicle up to a dynamometer. They will then run your car at various speeds, and compare readings from the dynamometer, which is the actual speed your car is doing, to the reading on your speedometer. A speedometer calibration certificate is then generated that states how many miles your speedometer is off.
Traffic Courts often drop or reduce a speeding ticket or reckless driving ticket based on a “faulty equipment plea.” We provide a notarized speedometer calibration certificate FREE along with the calibration test fee. The speedometer calibration test is $65.00 which includes a notarized certificate. These speedometer accuracy certificates are accepted in most courts including those in Virginia, Washington DC, Maryland, North Carolina, West Virginia, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.
We can test your speedometer calibration accuracy while you wait right here in Windsor, Virginia. Please note there is an additional fee to actually correct the inaccuracy if any is found.
