Here's What to Know About Idaho State Vehicle Inspections

Idaho is home to some of the most amazing natural beauty in the whole country. To help preserve that beauty, the state government of Idaho requires emissions testing for vehicles in the population hub of the state: the Boise metropolitan area.

Residents of Ada County and Canyon Country, which largely make up the Boise metro area, are required by law to get emissions inspections for specific kinds of vehicles. These inspections ensure that vehicles aren't producing too many pollutants that can affect the air quality of the area. Here's some important information to keep in mind.

  • Emissions testing and Ada and Canyon Counties are required every other year.
  • If you're moving into the area, you'll get a notice for required emissions testing after you have registered your vehicle.
  • Idaho emissions testing must be completed at an official Idaho testing station. You can find lists of these locations online.
  • If your car fails, you will have to make the specified repairs before re-testing. If you get the repairs within 30 days, you can return for re-test without additional charges.

There are certain exemptions for emissions testing as well.

  • Vehicles That Are Less Than Five Model Years Old
  • Motor Homes
  • Vehicles Under 1,500 Pounds
  • Classic Vehicles
  • Hybrid and Electric Vehicles
