Waiver Now Available

65 and Older Emissions Inspection Testing Waiver

During this public health emergency, if you are a resident that is 65 and older who has an emissions test required on your vehicle registration renewal notice, you can delay testing for up to one year by acquiring a waiver from ADEQ's Director.  We are currently ONLY accepting waiver applications for vehicle registration renewals due in March, April or May of 2020.

There is a $9.50 fee for this option, which is less than the cost of the emissions test. The fee is payable to ADEQ by check only (no cash or credit cards accepted).
This waiver can be used to renew your vehicle registration online with ADOT. Once your waiver information has been received and processed, you will receive an email or phone call (for mail-in requests) about next steps for renewing your vehicle registration. 

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."
