As a motorist in the Atlanta Metro Area, you have a responsibility to care for the air and environment. By scheduling an emissions inspection at a certified emissions inspection facility, you are helping to create a cleaner, healthier Georgia.
Douglas County AutoCare provides emissions testing and repair to customers in Douglasville, GA , Lithia Springs, GA, Hiram, GA , and surrounding areas.
If your vehicle is a 1996 – 2011 model year gasoline-powered car or light-duty truck (8,500 pounds gross vehicle weight rating or less) registered in Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, Coweta, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry, Paulding or Rockdale County, it must be emissions tested.
The three most recent model year vehicles are exempt from emissions testing each year. For registration in 2014, this includes all 2012 and newer model year vehicles.
Additionally, vehicles that are 25 model years or older are exempt from emissions testing. This includes 1989 or older model year vehicles.
If you are late renewing your registration for your birthday in 2013, your vehicle will be tested according to the 2014 rules.
At the end of an emissions test at our facility, one of our emissions technicians will present you with certificate that indicates the result of your emissions test.
Well-maintained vehicles usually pass the emissions test first time unless there is a component failure that has not been repaired or manufacturer’s defect. Standards have been set to take into consideration the age of your vehicle as well as the emissions control components available at the time your vehicle was manufactured. If your car does fail, it must be repaired and retested.
You will receive one free retest if you return to the original inspection station within 30 calendar days of your initial inspection (Note: 30 days includes the date and the time of your initial inspection).
Keep Georgia a clean and healthy state. Pay attention to engine performance and stay on top of vehicle maintenance. For more information about Georgia’s Emissions Testing Requirements, please visit http://www.cleanairforce.com/
