New Mexico State Emissions Testing

Drive a car in Bernalillo County regularly? You'll need to bring it in for emissions testing before you can get it registered.

The state of New Mexico is one of many that requires regular emissions testing for qualifying motor vehicles. These requirements and procedures are in place to ensure that cars on the roads of Albuquerque and beyond aren't emitting more carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, or other pollutants than the law allows.

Which Cars Need a New Mexico State Emissions Test?

New Mexico has specific requirements for vehicle emissions testing in Bernalillo County. All vehicles manufactured after 1983 and weighing under 10,000 pounds are required to undergo regular emissions testing. Testing is required every two years, before registration or at change of ownership. Hybrid vehicles must undergo testing every two years. If your vehicle is powered by diesel or electricity, it's exempt.

A passing emissions test is required to register any vehicle that fits the testing requirements. If your vehicle fails the test, you'll need to get the necessary repairs before you can have it registered.
