Having trouble finding a station doing emissions testing near you?


Please call your local station or the Missouri Department of Natural Resources before you go. Some stations are experiencing temporary problems with their emissions inspections. We are working to get this fixed as soon as possible.

The Gateway Vehicle Inspection Program (GVIP) improves air quality in the St. Louis region.

The United States settled complaints against the Volkswagen AG, et al. The settlements resolve claims that Volkswagen violated the Clean Air Act by selling approximately 590,000 model year 2009 to 2016 vehicles equipped with 2.0-liter and 3.0-liter diesel engines with emissions defeat devices. You can find more information here.
