Information for Philadelphia Area Drivers
In October 1997, Pennsylvania upgraded the Vehicle Emissions
Inspection and Maintenance Program, operating since 1984,
as part of an overall plan to bring cleaner air to Pennsylvania.
Motorists helped design the program with driver convenience
in mind. Private garages do both tests and repairs annually,
just like the safety inspection. The safety and emissions
test will continue to be done at the same time and at fees
set by competition.
