Emission testing is required every new year on all automobiles resident to the state of Texas. The testing itself is known as Air Check Texas. The test itself differs based on which county you reside in. All Dallas City Garage Auto repair locations provide emission testing that is performed by one of our expert mechanics.

If your vehicle does not pass the original emissions testing, you can take the emissions repair test to make up for it. If your vehicle doesn’t meet the standard after taking the required repair work, you may be able to obtain a waiver used by the Texas Department of Public Safety. Cars older than 24 years are considered antiques and are exempt from having to take the test.

Acquiring a waiver can be justified through proof that vehicular usage is minimal, that your vehicle emission levels are low, or the cost of meeting the emission standard are too high.

Your Dallas City Garage mechanics are highly experienced at conducting automobile emissions tests as well as performing emission repairs. Stop by your Dallas City Garage auto repair location and let us get your car back on the road. You can make an appointment either by phone or online, and all of our locations including Dallas City Garage feature free Wi-Fi to allow you to continue working, and/or keep yourself occupied while you wait. If you need to be somewhere else, one of our ASE certified mechanics will drop the vehicle off at your home or office when the repair is complete.
