Passenger cars, trucks, RVs and motor homes need an emissions test if they are:
- Based in the urban areas of Clark or Washoe county
- Gasoline powered (regardless of weight or size)
- Diesel powered with a manufacturer's gross vehicle weight rating up to and including 14,000 pounds and 1968 model year or newer
- New vehicles on their third registration. First and second registrations are exempted. Hybrids are exempt for five model years.

Emissions symbol

Emissions tests are valid for 90 days. The test results are transmitted to the DMV immediately and you will receive a Vehicle Inspection Report. At this time, you may also renew your vehicle registration at Thomas Automotive.

Don't take your 1996 or newer vehicle in for an emission test right away if you have just disconnected the battery for any reason. Your vehicle will not pass the test and will be "Rejected". The vehicle will need to be driven under varying conditions for up to one week in order for the On Board Diagnostics system to re-establish drive cycles.

If your vehicle FAILED the smog test, feel free to CALL US (702)656-7037
