Time Extension Waiver

The state of Vermont recognizes that emissions repairs not covered under warranty can be costly. There is a time extension waiver available to allow for additional time to bring your vehicle into compliance.

My vehicle did not pass inspection. What next?

If your vehicle failed a safety component, speak to your repair technician and have it repaired immediately. You must pass the safety portion of the vehicle inspection in order to receive a pass sticker.

If your vehicle failed the on-board diagnostic (OBDII) part of the inspection, it is likely that your vehicle’s engine and/or emissions control system needs repairs. Review your Vehicle Inspection Report (VIR) to understand the reasons for failure. Your inspection mechanic should be able to answer your questions.

Why do we have emissions testing?

Federal law requires Vermont to have an emissions testing program. Ensuring your vehicle is in proper working order allows for;

  • Early detection of defects that lead to repairs that improve vehicle performance and fuel economy.
  • Repairing a defect before it gets worse saves money.
  • Protecting our environment and our health by identifying vehicle problems that cause increased air pollution.
