Tennessee Bill to Exempt Certain Older Vehicles From Emissions Tests Scheduled for Hearing

SEMA-supported legislation to exempt vehicles more than 25 years old from the state’s annual emissions-inspection and maintenance program will be considered by the Tennessee House Conservation and Environment Committee. To qualify for the exemption, these vehicles must be registered as “antique motor vehicles.” Existing law only exempts vehicles manufactured before the ’75 model year from emissions inspection. Currently, annual emissions inspections must be passed prior to registration and renewal in the counties of Hamilton, Davidson, Rutherford, Sumner, Williamson and Wilson and in the city of Memphis.
