Alabama does not currently require emissions testing for your vehicle. However, if you are concerned about the environment or are wondering if your car is a high emitter, you can have your car tested for free.
The Waste Reduction and Technology Transfer Foundation has partnered with a few organizations to bring free emissions testing to Jefferson County and Shelby County. If your car is found to be a high emitter The Car Care Program will pay for 80% of repairs, and a max of $500. If 80% of the repair exceeds $500 the owner will be responsible for 20% of the repair plus the excess over $500.
This program is a great way for you to get involved, and contribute to improving Alabama’s air quality.
