Do I need a smog check / emissions test in Reno, NV?
The Nevada Emission Control Program stipulates that passenger cars, trucks, RVs, and motorhomes must book a test if they are:
- Based in the urban areas of Clark or Washoe county;
- Gasoline powered (regardless of weight or size);
- Diesel powered with a manufacturer’s gross vehicle weight rating up to and including 14,000 pounds.
New vehicles are now exempt from testing until their fourth registration, and hybrids are exempt for a total of five model years.
You should also book an emission test/smog repair service if your check engine light turns on.
Emissions tests are valid for 90 days, or 180 days if the vehicle was purchased from a Nevada dealer.
All used car dealers must provide valid passing emissions tests with any vehicle they sell that is intended to be registered in Clark or Washoe counties. However, in private transactions, emissions tests and smog repairs are the buyer’s responsibility.
What is involved in an emissions test?
At Automotion Service and repair, every emission check and repair include:
- Full analysis of your vehicle’s on-board diagnostic system, emissions-control system, and check engine light codes
- Complete inspection of your vehicle’s gas cap, ignition timing, exhaust gas recirculation system, fuel, and evaporative system
- Comprehensive Tailpipe Emissions Inspection service to measure the type and quantity of pollutants emitted for your vehicle’s tailpipe
If you pass, great! We’ll give you a vehicle inspection report certifying your ride is in good condition.
