According to the Utah Department of Motor Vehicles, vehicles less than six years old must pass an emissions test every two years. Vehicles with even-numbered model years will need their emissions test on even-numbered calendar years and vehicles with odd-numbered model years need the test on odd-numbered years. Vehicles older than six years will require a yearly emissions test. Paskett Auto Care provides emission testing, and we do provide on-the-spot vehicle renewal.
We are an authorized station for on-the-spot renewal. Once we complete the inspection, we will submit the transaction through the Utah DMV, allowing the taxes and fees to be paid, and our customers do not need to visit the DMV for their registration paperwork and new sticker!
All vehicles registered in Davis, Weber, Salt Lake, and Utah counties need to have an emission test done per their calendar year and model year.
Emissions testing determines the level of air pollutants emission from the exhaust from a vehicle. When a vehicle fails an inspection, it indicates certain repairs must be made, or you cannot register the car. We test for levels of hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxide, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and emissions during the inspection. We check for other signs of trouble with your car while it’s in our Roy auto body shop to ensure our customer’s vehicles are safe to drive and ready to hit the open road!
Failed Emission Test? We Can Help!
If your vehicle fails an emission test, what can you do? If you visited Paskett Auto Care for your emissions, we will provide you with information regarding the vehicle’s problems that must be repaired to allow the car to pass inspection. You can obtain a free emission retest within 30 days.
Common reasons vehicles fail emissions;
- Faulty fuel injection
- Air injection system
- Oxygen sensor malfunction
- Ignition system defects
- Vehicle vacuum leaks
In the past, it was required for every vehicle to have a safety test in addition to the standard emissions test. However, in 2018, the State of Utah removed the safety inspection requirement for most vehicles except for the following;
- Salvage titles
- First-time street-legal ATVs
- Commercial vehicles
