Air pollution is a serious public health and environmental issue in the metro Atlanta area. Stationary sources of pollution from industry and commercial operations continue to face more stringent regulations. However, a significant amount of pollution is produced from mobile sources including gasoline-powered cars and light-duty trucks.
Today, annual emissions testing in the Atlanta Metro area is required.
Which Vehicles Need GA Emission Testing?
For the calendar year 2012 If your vehicle is a 1988-2009 model year gasoline-powered car or light-duty truck (8,500 pounds gross vehicle weight rating or less) registered in Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, Coweta, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry, Paulding or Rockdale County.
Some Tips on How to Pass an Auto Emissions Test
Additionally, vehicles that are 25 model years or older are exempt from emission testing. This includes 1987 or older model year vehicles for calendar year 2012.
One of the best ways to ensure you pass is by keeping your vehicle properly maintained by following the factory-recommended maintenance schedule. We can help.
There is no better way to help reduce vehicle emissions then to keep your car in good shape. Maintaining your car properly tuned up results in less emissions. Emissions testing will help pinpoint the problems in your car and its engine. It is wise to have your car checked for any problems and repairs first before you have it tested.
NAPA’s Premier Service Center is a Georgia Certified Emissions Testing facility and we our ASE Certified technicians are fully qualified to repair your vehicle’s emission control systems if you don’t pass. We have a 98% or better success rate at getting vehicles to pass upon the first retest!
OK, so now what happens if you don’t pass?
First, don’t panic. You can take the test again for free after you have your repairs completed.
Well-maintained vehicles usually pass the first time unless there’s an component failure or manufacturer’s defect. Standards have been set to take into consideration the age of your vehicle, as well as the emission control components available at the time your vehicle was manufactured.
If your car does not pass, it must be repaired and retested. Keep in mind that inspectors have no control over test results on properly performed inspections. Inspectors have no way of knowing why your vehicle failed based on test results alone.
You will receive one free retest if you return to the original inspection station within 30 calendar days of your initial inspection. (30 days includes the date and time of your initial inspection). Note: Before a retest can be performed, you must provide the failed Georgia Vehicle Emission Inspection Report (VIR) and a completed Emission Repair Form, which should be filled out by your repair technician.
After your vehicle fails the initial test, the first step is to receive a comprehensive diagnostic analysis, which is required to identify what is wrong with your emission control system or your engine before a repair recommendation can be made. (Your emission test is not a diagnostic analysis.)
You can expect to be charged for the diagnostic analysis. However, the fee will apply toward your Repair Waiver requirements, if needed.
Next, bring your car into a reputable shop like NAPA’s Premier Service Center.
