Why an Emissions Test?

First and foremost, an emission test is required in most SE Wisconsin counties:

  • Before your license plates are renewed every other year (starting the third year after the vehicle’s model year)
  • When the ownership of the vehicles changes
  • After initial registration in Wisconsin

Emissions testing and inspection can be something that really sneaks up on you, luckily the Wisconsin Department of Transportation will notify you by mail when your next emission test is due. Some vehicles are exempt from getting an emissions test, including:

  • Vehicles with a model year 1995 and older
  • Diesel vehicles older than 2006
  • Motorcycles
  • Truck with farm registered plates
  • Qualifying school buses and service vehicles

For the complete list of exempt vehicles, specifics on why vehicles are tested, and other testing restrictions and requirements, check out the WisDOT emissions test page.
