State drops certificate for emissions testing

Posted: Wednesday, September 04, 2002

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- The state Division of Motor Vehicles will take another step into a paperless electronic world.

Until now, anyone whose vehicle passed emissions tests had to present a paper certificate as proof that the vehicle passed in order to register the vehicle.

Starting Wednesday such proof of compliance will be sent electronically to DMV.

Emissions tests are required for anyone owning a vehicle in Anchorage or Fairbanks or who drives there regularly.

Although no paper proof is required, a registration sticker must be displayed in the windshield. The window sticker is part of an overall program to make it more difficult to commit fraud or avoid the inspection, said DEC manager Cindy Heil.
