Waiver Offered through May 31, 2020

65 and Older Emissions Inspection Testing Short-Term Waiver Option (Ends May 31, 2020)

As a temporary precautionary measure, ADEQ is offering a short-term waiver option for residents 65 and older to postpone vehicle emissions testing for up to one year. Seniors with vehicle registration renewals due in March, April or May 2020, that also are due for emissions testing, may choose to apply for the one-year waiver option through May 31, 2020.

There is a $9.50 administrative fee for this option, which is less than the cost of the emissions test. The administrative fee is payable to ADEQ by check or credit card. Once your waiver has been processed and approved, you will receive an email or phone call (for mail-in requests) with payment instructions and next steps for renewing your vehicle registration. This waiver can be used to renew your vehicle registration online with ADOT.

You can apply here online with this form or mail your request by following the instructions on the right of this page titled "Mail In Your Waiver Request."
