Emissions Testing Station Schedules


All emissions testing stations will be closed beginning March 26 and will remain closed until further notice.

In order to facilitate the treatment and containment of COVID-19, Governor Lee issued Executive Order No. 19 on March 24th that suspended the requirement of inspection and testing of light-duty motor vehicles in Tennessee and the requirement for a light-duty motor vehicle owner to submit a certificate of compliance relative to a vehicle's registration in all cases where required between March 12, 2020, and May 18, 2020. Such requirements shall return to their original schedule in subsequent years. 

Therefore, the requirements for vehicle emissions testing are suspended until May 18, 2020.  

The Division of Air Pollution Control will update this notice with details as to when vehicle emissions testing  services will be fully operational in order to resume testing in the near future. The Division of Air Pollution Control will work to ensure that testing services are available in enough time for vehicles to be tested prior to the extended registration due date. Please call 866-329-9632 with any questions.
