Notices Q&A

Will I get a notice in the mail when my vehicle is due for testing?

Yes, a first notice will be sent at the beginning of the due month to the address on the vehicle's registration. Motorists will have until the end of the due month to complete the required emissions test. The final notice will be sent reminding the motorist that they failed to complete emission testing. If they do not complete the test by the final due date their vehicle registration will be revoked by Idaho Transportation Department (ITD). All notices will be sent to the address on record with ITD. Make sure ITD has your correct address.

How can I be sure I will be notified when my emissions test is due?

Keep your vehicle registration information up-to-date with Idaho Transportation Department (ITD). State law requires you to notify ITD of any address change within 30 days of relocation. ITD supplies AQB with the addresses to which emissions test notifications are sent. If your address of record is correct with ITD, notice(s) will be sent to the correct address. If not, notice(s) may be delayed or fail to reach you.

Do I have to wait to get my notice before I have my vehicle tested?

No. You can have your vehicle tested at any time for informational purposes. However, for a test to count towards program compliance, the test may only be conducted prior to the required testing due date.

I received a final notice but not a first. Has my registration been revoked?

Your registration has not been revoked. Since you received your Final Notice, you must test by the final due date. If you fail to comply and pass the test your registration will be subject to revocation.

I sold or traded the vehicle for which I just received a notice. What should I do?

The Air Quality Board will accept a fully completed signed bill of sale and sold notification, see this website under: Forms/Vehicle Sold. In order to be processed all documents must be submitted.

Idaho Code §49-526 requires a seller to complete and submit a “Release of Liability” within 5 days of selling or trading a vehicle. ITD’s “Notice of Release of Liability” form can be found on ITD’s website.
