Emissions Testing

Colorado's emissions testing laws are changing beginning January 2015.  The most significant change is that newer vehicles will need to be tested after seven instead of the current four model years.  This law was changed because new vehicles are being designed to stay efficient for a longer amount of time.  For information on the new laws and what they mean for your vehicle, whatever its age, see this information from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE).

Emissions testing in Colorado is overseen by CDPHE's AIR Program.  The program's annual reports are available online from our library.  For further information including locations and hours of testing stations and information on RapidScreen roadside emissions testing, see the CDPHE's Automobile Emissions Inspection webpage.

I think that is really interesting that they are actually letting you get away without getting your emissions done for 7 years. We'll see if this law stays around for very long. I'm moving out to Colorado in a couple of months, so this will have a big affect on me. It's a good thing I just bought a brand new car. http://www.checkerflag.biz/services.html
