  • Car Inspection in Florida

    The State of Florida abolished the auto emissions test requirement for all vehicles throughout the state. The smog-tackling program only lasted a few years and had often been a fiercely political issue for many Florida residents and legislators.

    Several counties allegedly registered air clean enough to make the tests obsolete, but even the counties with continuing poor air quality are looking for alternate ways to breathe easy again.

    Florida Incentives for Eco-Friendly Driving

    The state does reward drivers who purchase automobiles that are EPA-certified as Inherently Low Emission Vehicles (ILEV), including hybrids. All ILEV drivers are eligible to drive in a High Occupancy Vehicle lane at any time, regardless of how many people are riding in the car. Check this list to see if your vehicle qualifies.

    If it does, fill out the Application for HOV Decal (Form HSMV 83027) to receive a sticker for your car. Submit the completed application to your local county Tax Collector's office. The fee is $5 for a decal valid 1 year, $10 for a decal valid 2 years and a $0.75 for the mailing fee.

    Note: For more information regarding eco-friendly driving perks, refer to our green driver incentives section.
