Vehicle Emissions Testing Suspended until May 18, 2020

On March 24, 2020, Governor Bill Lee issued Executive Order No. 19, which suspended requirements for vehicle emissions testing in Tennessee from March 12, 2020 to May 18, 2020.

Executive Order No. 19 Amended Executive Order No. 15, which extended the expiration date on motor vehicle registrations that expire from March 12, 2020 through May 18, 2020. The expiration date was suspended to June 15, 2020.

Vehicle testing centers in Davidson, Hamilton, Rutherford, Sumner, Williamson and Wilson Counties are now closed.

“Suspending requirements for vehicle emissions testing in counties that conduct testing is necessary,” TDEC Commissioner David Salyers said. “Tennessee families are responding to many restrictions designed to curb the spread of COVID-19, and this action helps alleviate some of the difficulty Tennesseans are facing at this time.”

The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation’s Division of Air Pollution Control will update Tennesseans as to when vehicle emissions testing services are available so that vehicles may be tested prior to June 15, 2020.
