Late Fees for
Overdue Emissions Tests
Overview
State law requires DMV to charge a $20.00 late fee to the owner of a vehicle who did not meet the deadline to complete required emissions testing.  Failure to pay your emission late fee may affect the ability to renew or register the vehicle that was late.
This fee could be due to:
  • The vehicle owner did not have an emissions test on the vehicle.
  • The vehicle owner had the test more than 30 days past the due date.
  • The vehicle failed an emissions test and did not have the vehicle retested within 60
    days. 
  • The vehicle was issued a time extension and the vehicle was not tested before the extension expired.
