Federal Automotive Service and Towing is an official test center for the Connecticut Vehicle Emissions Program. Our trained specialists can administer the required test, get your car certified, and get you back on the road quickly.
We’re also available from 8 AM – 1 PM on Saturdays for emissions walk-ins.
• The Clean Air Act was enacted by Congress to reduce ozone pollution across the country. In our state, this effort is headed by the Connecticut Vehicle Emissions Program.
• The Connecticut Vehicle Emissions Program requires emissions testing every two years for all vehicles on the road. The only exceptions to this rule are electric cars, vehicles that weigh over 10,000 lbs., vehicles that are less than four model years old, and ones that are 25 years or older. Chances are, your car needs to be tested!
• The cost of the emissions test at all certified test centers is $20. If you fail to get your car tested, the DMV will assess you a $20 late fee and your registration renewal will be denied.
• You’ll receive a postcard notification from the DMV 45 days before your emissions test is due.
