Q: How will I know when my car need the CT EMISSION TESTING?
Most vehicle owners will receive an official notification letter for CT EMISSION TESTING. That letter will provide a generous time period before your vehicle’s test date.
If you recently purchased a used vehicle that was registered in Connecticut, you will not receive a notification letter. However, it is your obligation to have your vehicle tested within 30 days of its registration date with or without a notification letter. From that point on your vehicle will be required to be tested on its scheduled due date.
Q: What happens if I don’t receive a CT Emission Testing notification?
It is still your obligation to be sure that your vehicle is tested even if you do not receive a notification. You should check the CT Emission Testing website for your vehicle’s assigned test date or call CT Emissions at 1-888-828-8399.
Note that if you have recently moved, you should be sure to submit your change of address to DMV. You can also, check your vehicle’s test date at any time by accessing the test lookup database at CT Emission Testing website
Q: How do I get my CT Emission Test Date?
You can find your vehicle’s test date by entering your vehicle’s VIN Number or vehicle identification number (usually a 17 digit number available on the vehicle’s windshield and on the Connecticut registration certificate) on the test lookup database at the CT Emission Testing Website.
Q: What if I don’t have my official notification for CT Emission Testing or if I lost it?
If you received your notification, but misplace it, you can still find your test date by visiting the When Do I Get Tested page on the CT Emission Testing website and following the instructions posted there.
Also know that you can request an e-mail reminder of your test due date or print the test date page and save it for future reference.
However, a new notification will NOT be mailed to you. If that’s the case, you should bring your vehicle’s registration with you when you stop at Precision Motor Coach to get the CT Emission Testing completed.
Q: How often does my car need to have the CT Emission Testing done?
Your vehicle will need to be tested every other year – in other words – every two years on its test cycle due date. If you have recently moved, be sure that you change your address with the Department of Motor Vehicles so that your test notification will be sent to the correct address.
Q: Once I receive my official CT Emission Testing notice, how long do I have to get my vehicle tested?
In most cases, the official notification letter for CT Emission Testing will provide you a generous time period to get your vehicle tested.
If you recently purchased a used vehicle that was registered in Connecticut, you will not receive a notification letter. However, it is your obligation to have your vehicle tested within 30 days of its registration date with or without a notification letter.
From that point on your vehicle will be required to be tested on its scheduled due date. You can also find your vehicle’s test date by entering your vehicle’s identification number (usually a 17 digit number available on the vehicle’s windshield and on the Connecticut registration certificate) in the Test Look Up Database on the CT EMISSION TESTING WEBSITE.

All hybrid vehicles are required to be tested. Many will be tested with the new OBD technology.
Q: What type of test is performed for CT Emissions?
The type of emissions test that your vehicle receives is dependent upon its model year and make. Handicapped vehicle owners may also receive an alternate test appropriate for their unique situation.
Q: I’ve heard about a “Gas Cap Leak Test”. Do you do that? Is the Gas Cap Leak Test a part of the CT Emission Test?
Yes, the Gas Cap Leak Test is part of the CT Emission Test. We utilize a pressurized tester to determine if your vehicle’s gas cap is leaking. If your gas cap leaks, you would be leaking fuel vapors into the atmosphere.
Q: What if I miss my date for my CT Emission Test?
If your vehicle is tested more than 30 days after its scheduled due date, or more than 60 calendar days late for its free retest date, you will be assessed a $20 Late Fee.
Q: What happens if I don’t get my vehicle tested for CT Emissions?
Your vehicle is required to be tested every other year on its test cycle due date. If you fail to have your vehicle tested your registration will be denied. Also, you may face other law enforcement action up to an including infractions and fines.
