The DMV is empathetic to the situation we all face during this difficult time in our community of acquiring an emission test when required to register a vehicle. Unfortunately, the requirements for vehicle emission testing are not governed by the DMV and the DMV has no authority to waive emission testing requirements.
In order to provide additional time to acquire a required emission test you may go online and receive a temporary operating permit prior to completing an emission test. Registration fees will be required. As of Thursday April 2, 2020, online temporary permit time frames have been extended from 15 days to 30 days. Visit rex.utah.gov.
