for the Illinois Vehicle Emissions Testing Program
If your vehicle is due for testing and your plates are expired, please test at your earliest convenience. Waiting until the end of October, when the SOS registration extenstions are expected to end, could result in heavy traffic and long wait times.
Extensive precautions are in place and follow Illinois Department of Public Health COVID-19 Workplace Guidelines to protect motorists and our staff. Motoris are asked to do their part to keep us all safe by coming alone to Air Team testing locations and wearing facial coverings.
Please do not come to Air Team testing locations if you are exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms.
If you do not feel comfortable visiting an Air Team testing location, we recommend you have someone else bring your vehicle in for emissions testing.
Illinois EPA encourages those 65 and older, healthcare workers, first responders, and those with pre-existing health conditions to visit Illinois Air Team testing locations during the first testing hour of each day. We ask those without these special considerations to arrive at testing facilities after the first testing hour of each day.
