Arizona – General Emissions Information

Last updated on April 26th, 2018

There are general questions concerning the Arizona emissions testing program that people have.  This section will attempt to answer some of the most frequently asked questions and provide tips on Arizona emissions policies.

Can I have a passenger or pet in the car during emissions testing?

No, you should not bring any passenger or pet in your vehicle when you bring your vehicle for emissions testing.  You will be required to exit the vehicle during emissions testing or you will need to move to the passenger seat.  No other person and no pet is allowed in the car during emissions testing.

What if my car is not running?

All vehicles must be able to enter the emissions inspection station on their own power.  If you have any trailers or attachments on the back of your vehicle you will need to remove them prior to testing.

Can I get my emissions tested if my check engine light is on?

If your vehicle is from 1996 or is newer and has OBD equipment you will not pass the emissions testing procedure if your check engine light is on.  You should have your vehicle repaired prior to testing.

How much are the fees for emissions testing in Arizona?

The fees vary depending on location and type of vehicle.  In the Tuscon area all vehicles are $12.25 to get the emissions testing done.  In the Phoenix area if your vehicle is 1981 or newer and under 8,500 pounds the fee is $27.75.  Heavy duty diesel vehicles which weight more than 8,500 pounds are assessed a $28 fee for emissions testing, and most other vehicles are $19.
