If your vehicle has not been registered within the state of Colorado in the past, in addition to an emissions test, you must also obtain a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) verification prior to registering your vehicle. VIN Verifications may be obtained at an Air Care Colorado test center; however, they are not performed in the test lanes. They must be requested at the station office. Fee is $20.
Brand New Vehicles
If you are bringing into the program area a brand new vehicle that has never been registered in any state, you do not need an emissions test. If the vehicle has never before been registered anywhere in the state of Colorado, you will need a VIN verification. Do not drive the vehicle into the testing lanes for a VIN verification; request a VIN verification at the office.
