Paying your bill online
You may pay for your inspection certificate online using a credit card.

Please note that we do NOT accept credit card payments over the phone.

Instead, you must click the button below to access the Elavon credit card payment portal.

You will be asked to provide the following information:

o Invoice number
o VA object number
o User name

The Invoice number can be found on the upper left-hand side of the invoice. Please ensure you enter this number exactly as it appears on the invoice.

The VA Object Number can also be found on the invoice we sent you. It consists of six digits preceded by the letters “VA”, such as VA123456

Your invoice may have more than one VA Object Number. However, you only need to provide one VA Object Number to process payment. Please ensure you enter the letters “VA” plus the corresponding six digits.

The USER name is the entity or person to whom the invoice was sent. The USER name appears on the address field, below the word “USER”

You will receive confirmation via email directly from Elavon that your transaction was successful. This may take a few minutes.
