Smog Test Failures & Waivers 

If your vehicle has failed the initial emission test, you must repair it and pass a second test to be eligible for registration. If it still fails after repairs, you may be eligible for a waiver if you meet the requirements below.

If your registration is expired or about to expire, you may receive a temporary movement permit by presenting the failed emissions test at a DMV office. You may be charged late fees and/or cited by law enforcement if you operate a vehicle on public streets with an expired registration.

Repairs can be made by the owner or any facility the owner chooses. However, vehicles in Clark County must be repaired by a 2G Licensed Authorized Station to be eligible for a waiver.

"No Pass-No Pay" options and similar promotions are not mandated by State law and are offered at the discretion of the individual station. Stations may charge for each test.

Waiver Requirements

If the vehicle still fails after being repaired, it may be eligible for a waiver. Your vehicle must fail:

Carbon monoxide and/or hydrocarbon levels exceeding standards for 1968-1995 light duty vehicles and all heavy duty vehicles, or;
Illuminated “Check Engine” lamp for 1996 and newer light duty vehicles.

Waivers will not be issued to:

Vehicles eligible for warranty coverage.
Smoking Vehicles - The vehicle must be repaired with no limit on cost.
Emission Device Tampering – The vehicle must be repaired with no limit on cost.

Emission components could be covered under warranty for up to 8 yrs or 80,000 miles, whichever occurs first, under federal law. See EPA Emission Warranty Information.

Clark County

The vehicle must be repaired by a 2G Licensed Authorized Station to be eligible for a waiver. The waiver application must include receipts from the station showing that at least $450 has been spent on parts other than a catalytic converter, fuel inlet restrictor or air injection system, or on labor other than emission testing if the repairs evidenced by the receipt were directly related to the deficiency in emissions.

If the vehicle is not repaired at a authorized 2G station, it will not be eligible for a waiver, regardless of the cost incurred. See Business License Verification for a list of stations. Please click here for or more information. Courtesy of DMVNV.Com/Emission
