Car Inspection in Kansas
Kansas does not have emissions enforcements for motor vehicles. You are not required to have your vehicle tested, and, consequently, no related paperwork is required in order to register your vehicle.
There are many ways to pollute the air, and, while many manufacturing plants, factories, and other industrial operations create their fair share of waste and pollutants, cars, and trucks on our nation's freeways, turnpikes, highways, and thoroughfares are the biggest contributor to emissions pollution.
Kansas Incentives for Eco-Friendly Driving
Today's cars are created to keep emissions at a low level or, in some cases, to stop emissions completely. Between advanced smog control devices and the new alternative-fuel-burning motor vehicles, the air we breathe might be considerably cleaner than it was 30 years ago.
Still, although the Division of Motor Vehicles (DOR) does not offer an emissions test exemption for electric cars and fuel-efficient vehicles (or any vehicles, for that matter), you can find more on other perks specific to eco-friendly driving—such as tax breaks and auto insurance discounts—on our page on green driver incentives.
In order for your vehicle to continue to keep emissions down, it is important that you maintain it in good running condition. Keep all filters clean, take it in for regular service and try not to engage in gas-wasting driving habits, such as jackrabbit starts and speeding. While these behaviors might not be as damaging as driving a car with no emissions controls, they do consume more fuel, which, in turn, creates more emissions.
Next time you get ready to purchase a new vehicle, take a few minutes to consider some of the newer alternative fuel and combination fuel vehicles being sold. Not only will they help you save at the pump, but they can even get you a tax break and will help you do your part to keep the air in Kansas clear and clean.Local Smog Check Stations
