Comprehensive Vehicle Emissions And Inspection

In order for you to register your vehicle in the most populated cities in Arizona, it will have to pass a state inspection and emissions test. The fuel combustion process that makes your vehicle run, produces gases and other pollutants that are harmful to the environment. Your vehicle’s catalytic converter transforms most of these gases into less dangerous ones that aren’t as damaging to the environment, but many harmful fumes are still emitted into the air, including:

  • Carbon dioxide
  • Carbon monoxide
  • Hydrocarbons
  • Lead
  • Nitrogen oxides
  • Phosphorus
  • Sulfur dioxide

How Often Do I Need an Emissions Inspection?

In Maricopa and Pima Counties, you are required to take your car in for inspection and emissions testing every year for most makes and models more than five years old. Visit the Arizona ADEQ website to learn whether or not your vehicle needs to be tested. It is a good idea to have your car inspected by a certified automotive technician at least once a year to ensure optimum fuel efficiency and to save yourself the considerable time, money and hassle a failed emissions test will cost you.
