Emissions Inspection Exemption Not Effective January 1, 2014 - Effective Date Still Pending
The state Division of Air Quality and the Division of Motor Vehicles are continuing to work on the implementation of a “three model year” emissions inspection exemption that was enacted by the General Assembly in 2011. However, a few other steps are still required before the exemption can go into effect, including US Environmental Protection Agency approval of the revised State Implementation Plan for the Emissions Inspection and Maintenance Program.
As such, there is NO change to the emissions inspection process at this time and until further notice from DMV. DMV and the Division of Air Quality plan to engage in inspection station and inspection mechanic education efforts in plenty of time before the “three model year” exemption becomes effective, likely at some point in early 2014.
NCADA is making special note of the status of this matter at this time as January 1, 2014, was the earliest possible effective date included in the legislation implementing the exemption. However, again, the “three model year” emissions inspection exemption WILL NOT be effective January 1, 2014. Please be on alert for further information on the status of this upcoming exemption.
