Vehicle emissions testing resumes in Illinois

Emissions testing resumed June 1 at most Illinois Air Team testing locations. Currently, the Markham and Waukegan testing locations are closed to emissions testing because they are being used for COVID-19 drive-through testing. These two locations will reopen in the near future.

Vehicle registration expiration dates have been extended without penalty for at least 90 days. In order to manage traffic volume at stations and reduce motorist wait times, Illinois EPA is asking motorists to stagger their testing based on their registration expiration dates. Motorists with March or earlier registration expiration dates should test their vehicles in June. Motorists with other expiration dates will find a table of suggested testing dates on the Air Team webpage.
