The emissions test fee is $20, payable to the test center. All test centers accept cash as a form of payment, some may accept checks or credit cards but are not required do so; please call the test center to confirm. Test Centers that accept cash only must display a ‘Cash Only’ sign in an appropriate location visible to you.
If you fail to have your vehicle tested as required or get it tested after your due date, DMV will assess a $20 late fee and your registration renewal will be denied. Test Centers DO NOT collect late fees.
