TESTING INFORMATION & FEES

You will receive a notification of registration renewal from the Department of Transportation (MVD) in the U.S. mail or by e-mail. Be sure to read your registration renewal notice carefully as you may not need an emission test.

Vehicles may be tested at any Phoenix or Tucson emissions station. However, it is important to note that not all tests are the same and differ for Phoenix and Tucson residents. A vehicle emissions test is a requirement for the Phoenix and Tucson areas in order to apply for a vehicle registration. There are emissions stations conveniently located around the Phoenix and Tucson areas.
