HOLD ON! You Just Might Not Need that Emissions Test

WOW!! It's Thursday December 1
" 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


Just to be clear, NO YOU DO NOT have to do your Emissions Test at the same time as your annual, some companies prefer to have annuals and emissions done at different dates to save time and money. 

It really is simple.

Will it Pass?

Great Question, I get asked this a LOT,

(If your DIESEL Vehicle 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 or park it will be an automatic fail.

2022 Diesel Vehicles Do not require emission testing for renewal or change of ownership.

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

2007 – 2015 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,  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.
