Emission Test Repairs

Emission Repair in Homewood, IL

The Illinois Air Team Vehicle Emissions Testing Program exists to keep our state's air clean for generations to come. In adherence with the Clean Air Act amendments of 1990, the emissions testing program is required in certain large areas that do not meet federal air quality standards. Most passenger vehicles within Northeastern Illinois and the Metro-East St. Louis areas will need to be tested.

At De Re Tire & Auto, we help customers who fail the emissions test. If your vehicle does not pass, visit any of our four locations in Homewood, IL, New Lenox, IL, Oak Forest, IL, and Orland Hills, IL for an emissions repair service.

Emission Repairs in Illinois

If your vehicle is registered in an area that requires an emissions test, it is required to have its first test after it turns four years old. It is then required to be tested every two years after that. For example, a vehicle manufactured in 2010 will have it's first test in 2014. Afterward, it will need to be tested in 2016, 2018, 2020, and so on. To legally drive on the road, your vehicle must pass the test.

You are required to have your vehicle repaired and retested in the event of a failing grade. This is where De Re Tire & Auto Inc. is able to help. We provide professional emission services so your vehicle will be able to pass its second examination.
