ATLANTA — If you’ve tried to get your car or truck emissions inspection over the past few days, there’s a reason you have not been able to.

The Georgia Department of Revenue says their automated systems have been offline since March 31 after a system outage.

What it means is that anyone required to get an inspection before renewing their vehicle registration gets a waiver until the system is fixed.


The DOR says you’ll still need all your other documentation in order to renew the registration, meet insurance requirements and comply with all other state rules and regulations before getting your new stickers.

At this time, there’s no word from the Department about when the problem will get fixed.

Motor vehicle owners with a valid emissions test can renew their registration online at, at their county tag office, or at a kiosk location.
