Emissions testing is administered through a network of privately owned automotive service facilities located throughout the state. Each facility will have an exterior sign with its official test center number. Each facility will also provide designated emissions testing parking and a waiting area where you can view the test and review program literature.

All test centers are open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. You may either make an appointment for a test or drive up to any test center you choose. Not all test centers offer advance appointment. Some test centers may offer extended hours at their discretion; please contact your station for more information.

The test fee is $20. All test centers accept cash as a form of payment. Some may accept checks or credit cards, although they are not required to do so. Please call your test center before your visit to confirm accepted forms of payment.
