Emissions

Here's all you need to know and this is all current:



The federal Clean Air Act spells out air quality standards that all areas of the United States must meet. Southeastern Wisconsin is one of over 90 metropolitan areas in 35 states violating these standards. The Clean Air Act mandates the operation of state-administered vehicle emission inspection and maintenance programs in many of these areas, including Southeastern Wisconsin.
The purpose of the Wisconsin Vehicle Inspection Program (VIP) is to identify vehicles:
  • With excessive exhaust emissions and require them to meet reasonable emission standards to reduce vehicle-related air pollution
  • That have experienced emission equipment tampering, regardless of how caused. The owners of these vehicles are required to have "tampered" items repaired, replaced, or adjusted to proper working order before the vehicle can be registered.
The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) sets the emission standards for vehicles. Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) administers the Vehicle Inspection Program. Where tests are required

Emission tests are required on automobiles and on trucks with a manufacturer's gross vehicle weight less than 10,000 pounds that are customarily kept in the Wisconsin counties of:
  • Kenosha
  • Milwaukee
  • Ozaukee
  • Racine
  • Sheboygan
  • Washington
  • Waukesha
Exceptions are vehicles produced prior to the 1968 model year, diesel-powered vehicles and motorcycles.
