How do i know if my car needs to do the ontario drive clean emmission test?

+9 votes

In the past, the Ontario ministry of transportation used to sent us the vehicle ticker reminder mail well before the expiry date of the car sticker but this time it seems like they were taking longer to send out the reminder mail. I simply wanted to know if my car needs to do a vehicle emission test before renewing my car sticker. I don't like to wait till the last moment, and then I have to rush to do the vehicle emission test to renew my car license sticker. What if my car wouldn't pass the emission test, then I would need to have my car repaired to fix that problem before I could renew the car license sticker.

You can go and ask at the service-Ontario centre and they should be able to tell you if your car needs emission test based on the year you bought your car. For example if you bought your car on 2005, then this year you would need to do the emission test for your car. Usually the time to renew your car sticker is the time that coincides with your birthday date.

The other option is to go to the service Ontario website and there is this link: http://www.downloads.ene.gov.on.ca/files/driveclean/onesite/en/ldv_when.asp

Simply enter your postal code, model year of car and license plate sticker expiry date. It will tell you if your car needs emission test.
