Ontario Drive Clean

About the test


The Emission tests, as of April 1st, are free for renewal purposes.  By law, certain cars, vans, trucks, motorhomes and buses must pass a Drive Clean test for a sticker renewal.


The Drive Clean test determines if your vehicle meets Ontario emissions standards.




When to get the test



Generally, you need to get the test every 2 years, once your vehicle is 7 years old. Larger vehicles (called ‘heavy-duty’ vehicles) require the test every year, once they are 7 years old.


The Ministry of Transportation will notify you when your vehicle needs an emissions test, when you receive your registration renewal documents (either online or in the mail).
