Safety Inspection for Vehicle Registration Renewal

Some counties in Utah require a safety inspection and emissions test for residents to renew their vehicle registration. 

  • Emissions test: Our mechanics can perform emissions testing no more than 60 days after the due date. After this period, you must go to the DMV to renew your plates.
  • Safety Inspection: The state of Utah removed the requirement for a safety inspection on most vehicles on January, 1 2018. The following vehicles still require safety inspections to renew your registration:
    • If you have a salvage vehicle and are requesting a rebuilt title
    • If you have a street-legal ATV
    • Commercial vehicles
    • If you have a Class-6, three-axel motorhome
  • Vehicles registered in Salt Lake County with model years less than six years old are required to have an emission test once every two years. Vehicles year 1967 and older, tractors, and electric vehicles do not require a safety inspection. View more details and other counties requirements here.

Utah Vehicle Registration Renewal Period

Automobile registrations are in effect for one year in Utah. A few weeks before your vehicle registration expires, the Utah DMV will send you a notice through regular U.S. mail reminding you of your registration expiration date.
