Colorado State Emissions Testing: What You Need to Know

The state of Colorado goes to great lengths to ensure clean air and preserve natural beauty. To help make that happen, many vehicles around Denver, Aurora, CO, and beyond are required to pass state emissions testing. If your car is one that requires testings, you need to pass in order to register.

Which Cars Need Emissions Testing?

Not all vehicles in the state need testing for registration. Colorado has specific criteria that designates vehicles for emissions testing.

  • Vehicles Older than Seven Years
  • Registration in Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas or Jefferson Counties
  • Heavy-Duty Vehicles Weighing Above 8,500 Pounds
  • Light-Duty Gas-Powered Vehicles Under 8,500 Pounds
  • Vehicles That Regularly Travel/Commute into the Denver Area

There are exceptions as well. If your vehicle is less than seven model years old, was built prior to 1975, or has an all-electric powertrain, emissions testing may not be required.

Where Can I Go for Colorado State Emissions Testing?

You'll need to take your vehicle to an official Air Care Colorado testing site. Air Care Colorado sites are found throughout the Denver area, so you can visit the location that's most convenient. The test itself will examine a variety of factors that affect your vehicle's emissions.
