How Much Does an Emission Test Cost?

An emission test is a procedure where a vehicle is subjected to a series of test that will determine if the smog released by a vehicle meets the city standards.  This is necessary to make sure the air does not get polluted.  This is one of the government’s initiatives to clean the air, and those who fail the test won’t be able to get their car registered with the state.
