i was wondering if we are requiered to pass the emission test on the GTO every 2 years?

i just purchased the car and found a paper in the car that was tested by the state in 09 and it states next test is in 2011... reason i'm asking is because we do not have the emission test on the vehicles. so what;s this? any idea

...the emissions test is when you get the notice so don't worry when it was tested last...it might be 2 years from when you buy it (and register it) but if you don't do the emissions test in your part of the state...you won't have to now...

very fair system for the emissions test, isn't it???...older cars that might pollute more are exempt and most the state is exempt...but newer cars that ALL seem to run clean need to be checked every two years...go figure...

enjoy your new ride...

I have been away from St Louis area in Illinois(Madison county) for 4 years on plating a car there. I still go back there a lot and rent out are home there.
Any one live there know the laws on emission there. I thought they followed Cook county rules. Is there a cut off for year and no more testing after that year? When I was there it was no test for diesel, historic plates and I think 1974 and before. Has that changed?

It use to be only Madison, St. Clair, and Cook Counties had emissions test in Illinois.
