DEQ does not require emissions testing of newer model year vehicles because
they typically have lower mileage and are therefore less likely to experience
problems with their emissions control systems.
During calendar year 2018, the following model years qualify as a “Newer
Model Year Vehicle”
- Model Year 2015 (So long as the current registration expires before January 1, 2019)
- Model Year 2016
- Model Year 2017
- Model Year 2018
- Model Year 2019
DMV’s vehicle registration renewal
If you have a “Newer Model Year Vehicle” as described above, then you can
renew online at www.OregonDMV.com/online without going through DEQ. If this
doesn’t apply to your vehicle or you don’t want to renew online, then follow the
INSTRUCTIONS section on DMV’s renewal application form.
