Vehicle emissions testing requirements suspended

The Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) announced that it is suspending the state’s vehicle emission testing in response to the ongoing COVID-19 response and Governor Polis’ declaration of a statewide stay-at-home order.

The order applies to emissions testing for both gasoline and diesel-powered vehicles.
