Georgia's Vehicle Emissions Inspection and Maintenance Program

Georgia's Clean Air force helps our area work towards attaining federal clean air standards.

For 2015 vehicle registration, if your vehicle is; 

A 1991 to 2012 *model year gasoline-powered car or light-duty truck(Gross Vehicle Weight rating 8500 Pounds or Less) and

Registered in Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, Coweta, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry, Paulding, or Rockdale counties. 

*The three most recent model years are exempt each year.  In 2015 this includes 2013 and newer model year vehicles.

A WARNING from Georga's Cleans Air Force states "For 1996 and newer model year vehicles, if your "malfunction indicator light" (MIL) is on - otherwise known as the  "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" Light, your vehicle WILL FAIL THE INSPECTION. This is a definite indication of one or more emissions-related problems detected by your vehicle's on-board diagnostic (OBD) computer.  The problem may be as minor as a loose fuel cap or as major as an emissions control system failure. Seek repairs prior to having an emissions test. If you present your vehicle for inspection with the "Check engine" light on, the inspector cannot refuse to test your vehicle".

The GCAF states "before a free re-test can be performed, you must provide the failing Georgia Vehicle Emissions Inspection Report (VIR) and completed Emissions Repair Form which should be filled out by your repair technician.If self-repairs are conducted by the vehicle's owner, only the cost of parts (not labor) should be documented on the Emissions Repair Form.

GCAF Testing Tip 1: Test early.The GCAF recommends having your vehicle inspected 4 - 6 weeks prior to the registration renewal date (The vehicle owner's birthday) to allow for any needed repairs.
