Before performing the emissions test, the inspector will do a visual check. If the inspector finds any of the following issues, it must be corrected before the emissions test can continue, as it could lead to injury and/or the test equipment may not work properly:
missing catalytic converter and/or gas cap
defects in the fuel filler pipe
problems with the on-board computer system that would prevent the vehicle from being tested
visible smoke coming from the tailpipe
any problems the inspector believes would prevent the vehicle from being tested safely

Our Technician will perform the test, provide you with test results and inform you if there are any required repairs.
Once your vehicle is 7 years old, you need to get the test every 2 years. Larger vehicles (called ‘heavy-duty’ vehicles) require the test every year, once they are 7 years old.
