Requirements and testing frequency varies. A new emissions test is required upon transfer of ownership before the vehicle can be registered in the new owner’s name.
Gas and Hybrid Vehicles
Gas and hybrid vehicles are exempt from emissions testing for the first seven (7) model years. (However, if you are buying and registering a vehicle that has reached 7 years, even if the 7th year is not complete, you will need an emissions test.)
Vehicles from 1982 and newer require an enhanced emissions test every other year at a cost of $25
Vehicles from 1981 or older must be tested every year at a cost of $15.
