Having an emissions inspection done on your vehicle is certainly helpful for the environment. They help determine how much pollution one vehicle is producing. With this purpose in mind, emissions tests are required annually in Georgia when renewing your registration. If your vehicle fails the emissions inspection, then it is required to undergo repairs.
The main reason these requirements are put in place is to reduce air pollution. Vehicles can be especially large players in polluting the air we breath. Emissions tests are a way to protect ourselves and our planet.
Emissions Testing Procedure
Generally speaking, it’s a good idea to have your emissions tested 4-6 weeks prior to your vehicle renewal date. That way you have time to make any needed repairs. Don’t fret, these tests are not costly. They also don’t take that long to complete. Not bad for a required service.
Every engine gives emissions. However, there is a limit to how much one vehicle can produce. This again is to cut down on air pollution. Our technicians will visually inspect your vehicle. They will simultaneously run a diagnostic report that shows emission output. Once complete, we will know exactly what needs to be repaired, if anything.
