Utah Emissions Inspections

Utah State Law requires that vehicle emissions tests are performed every 2 years for vehicles that are less than 6 years old.

Vehicles with odd model years do not require emissions tests in odd years, and vehicles with even model years do not require them in even years. Emissions inspections must be performed no more than two months before you renew your vehicle’s registration. Emission certificates must be submitted to the appropriate DMV office to complete registration.
