DMV: Emissions Test Late Fee Information

DMV Resumes Issuing Late Fees for
Overdue Emissions Tests
DMV has resumed issuing late fees for overdue emissions testing. The agency temporarily stopped issuing them in August 2015 when it installed a new computer system.   As a customer convenience, the agency kept the temporary stop until completing a review of vehicle and late-fee data.   With that review completed, DMV now needs to comply with state law requiring us to issue the bill. 
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
We know that this billing could be an unexpected inconvenience.  We appreciate your understanding of our legal obligation to collect the late fee now that the system is ready to accept payments.
