HOLD ON! You Just Might Not Need that Emissions Test

it's Thursday August 18

" Hey Alexa, Where is GMP Mobile Emissions "

We are now testing using the New DriveON Program, you may notice some small changes to your certificate


Please do NOT wait for a letter from the Ministry indicating what vehicles require testing, there have been NUMEROUS reports of customers not receiving it and causing delays in getting your sticker renewed.

It really is simple,

There is NO MORE Odd and Even program.

2022 vehicles do NOT require testing for renewal or transfers.

2021 – 2016 do NOT require emissions testing for renewal BUT do require testing for transfers and plate replacement.

2015 and OLDER, with a GVWR 4500 kg and HIGHER (Look on your ownership on the RIGHT Side around the middle you will see the GVWR XXXX), You require an Emissions Test in order to renew your Licence Sticker.

Questions? Give me a call 416-259-0945

Will it Pass?

Great Question, I get asked this a LOT,

(If your DIESEL GVWR is UNDER 4500 KG you can stop reading and go get your sticker).

If you see black smoke coming out the exhaust pipe when you snap the throttle good chance you may fail the emissions test,

If there is continuous smoke (not steam) coming from the exhaust while the engine is at operating temp and in neutral / park it will be a automatic fail 

2022 Diesel Vehicles Do not require emission testing.

2021 – 2016 only require emissions testing when replacing plates, change of ownership information or change of GVWR weight.

2015 – 2007 Medium Trucks like Dodge pickup, Ford F350, Chev 3500  Diesel Vehicles with a GVWR 4500 kg to 6350 kg require 2 tests, the Opacity Snap test and OBD test, ALL MONITORS MUST BE READY AND NO ENGINE LIGHT ON

2006 and Older with a GVWR 4500 to 6350 kg only require Snap Tests (No OBD Test Required) 

If you remove – modify or program for performance any emissions components chances are your vehicle will fail.

Damaged or missing DPF are popular items failing trucks. If your truck HAS a DPF and you see black smoke it’s a good chance your DPF is Damaged.
