Yes. Va will pass your car with a check engine light. The inspection station will try to get you to figure out what is wrong with you car but they will not fail it. However, If your SRS light is on, the car will fail the inspection.
The inspection light will come on when the engine is not operating properly. A check of the engine electronics is needed to find the problem that is turning the light on.
The check engine lamp has absolutely NOTHING to do with the VA safety inspection
Not in Massachusetts
Whether or not a car will pass inspection with the Check Engine light on is up to the state or county giving the test. As long as the car passes an emissions test, it should be fine.

Check your gas cap. The check engine light may come on if the gas cap isn't on tight enough. As for whether a car can pass inspection in Maine this way, I do not know.
Probably not. They check your dash lights for your turn signals.
Remove the battery cables for 5 minutes, should do it. Then the computer will reset and relearn after driving again. If a major fault was present before, it will return via the check engine light. If you need an inspection, then unhooking the battery for 5 minutes and driving maybe 20-40 miles and then going for inspection may do the trick. There is a small window where the check engine light hasn't come on yet and the IM monitors are mostly ready for inspection.....just before the check engine light comes on again. It will pass, in this window. But when the check engine light comes on again, it will not pass.
