Repair Waiver Application
Please fill out the application document and send all required documentation to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Repair Waiver Application (download form below, fill out, and return),
2 failed emission tests-the initial failing test prior to repairs and a failing test after repairs (to show the results of the repairs);
The retest will only qualify if readiness monitors meet the following conditions:
1996-2000=two uncleared monitors;
2001+=only one uncleared readiness monitor;
$300 in emission related repair receipts:
Receipts must show the vehicle owner's name, the specific vehicle information (VIN, plate) and the date the repairs were performed.
Repairs for model year vehicles 1996+ must be directed at the fault codes presented by the vehicle at the failing test.
If a vehicle which has had its emissions system tampered with (parts missing or intentionally defeated), it will not be granted a waiver until the emissions equipment has been made fully functional. If, after repairing the tampered emissions equipment, the vehicle requires further repairs to be brought within emissions standards, the cost required to repair the emissions equipment can be considered toward the waiver expenditure.
Any available warranty coverage shall be used to obtain needed repairs before any expenditures can be counted.
Qualifying repairs must be done by a recognized repair business, which can be verified by using a business entity name search on the Idaho Secretary of State’s “Business Search” website: https://sosbiz.idaho.gov/search/business
Labor costs can only be considered toward the repair waiver qualification from a recognized repair business. The cost of parts (not labor) used by non-technicians (e.g. vehicle owners) may be allowed to apply toward the minimum expenditure.
The costs for repair or replacement of any of the following emissions control components may be counted toward the $300 minimum expenditure for qualified repairs on a vehicle model year up to 1995:
A one-time diagnostic cost (up to $100)
Fuel filler cap
The cost of hoses, gaskets, belts, clamps, brackets or other accessories directly associated with these components.
