Emission and insurance requirements
Emissions Testing. Vehicles with a model year of 1981 and older must have an emissions test annually.
Proof of Insurance. Insurance companies are required by law to submit their policyholder information to the State's database by the seventh day of each month. If your insurance carrier has not provided proof of insurance to the State, you will be required to provide proof of insurance for renewal by coming into one of our offices. Proof of insurance can provided in hard copy, faxed to one of our branch offices, or shown to our agents on your smartphone as an email attachment at the time of your visit to the DMV. Contact your insurance company for proper verification.
