THE GOVERNOR HAS EXTENDED BMV LICENSE PLATE EXPIRATION DATES UNTIL JUNE 30TH.  If your plate is currently expired, or will be expiring in May or June, you now have until June 30th to renew your registration without a late penalty.

There is no appointment required for registration services at Clean Air Car Check’s Partial Service License Branch.  Simply get in line during normal business hours, whether or not you need an emissions test. There is an additional convenience fee for BMV services at an emissions testing facility.

ALL Clean Air Car Check locations are now open for testing and registration services.

When visiting for an emissions test, please remain in your vehicle with the windows up until an emissions inspector instructs you otherwise.

To limit potential risk, please do not come for testing with passengers or pets in your vehicle.

Your patience is appreciated as we safely transition back to full capacity. Our new limited contact testing procedures and safety precautions may slow our testing process down compared to normal, but please know that we will do our best to get every vehicle tested as efficiently and safely as possible.

Helping Indiana eliminate harmful pollutants that effect the air we breathe

Locations & Hours

Indiana is making steady progress toward reducing emissions of pollutants from industry, motor vehicles and other activities that contribute to the formation of ground level ozone in Lake and Porter counties.

The Clean Air Car Check program identifies vehicles that emit harmful pollutants and once repaired, those vehicles’performance and fuel economy are improved, as is the air we breathe. Properly maintained vehicles also result in less contamination being released into the groundwater.
