Illinois EPA Temporarily Closes All Vehicle Emissions Testing Stations

Illinois EPA Director John J. Kim today announced the temporary closure of all vehicle emissions testing stations in Illinois.  In the interest of safeguarding the health of all Illinoisans, including motorists that bring their vehicles in for emissions testing and the workers that perform these tests, the Illinois EPA will temporarily suspend vehicle emissions testing, including at all centralized and decentralized inspection station locations.  This is the right step to take and critical to aid in the State’s efforts to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. 

This suspension is effective Saturday, March 21, 2020, through April 7, 2020, and may be extended depending on circumstances.  The Illinois Air Team Call Center will remain open and available to address motorist emissions testing inquiries.  Motorists with questions may call 844-258-9071 Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM and Saturday from 7:30 AM to 1:00 PM or visit the Illinois Air Team website at
