Welcome to the Connecticut Emissions Program

Emissions Testing During the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak

Vehicles with an emissions expiration date, which falls between Tuesday, March 10, 2020, and Monday, June 8, 2020, have been granted a 90-day extension by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

If your vehicle recently failed the emissions test and is due to return between Tuesday, March 10, 2020, and Monday, June 8, 2020, the 90-day extension also applies to your vehicle.

Please be advised that some Test Centers have voluntarily used discretionary caution and opted to close their businesses because of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Test Centers may also be experiencing staffing shortages because of the outbreak. If you are planning to have the emissions test performed on your vehicle, please call the Test Center before arriving to make sure they are open for emissions testing.

Please check this website for further updates. Testing changes will be announced expediently. If you have general questions about COVID-19, you can visit ct.gov/coronavirus or call 2-1-1. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
