Florida Smog Check / Emissions Test
The State of Florida abolished all vehicle emissions test requirements back in the 1990’s. There are currently no vehicle emissions test requirements to register a vehicle in the State of Florida. The Florida Governor at the time, Jeb Bush, did away with state emissions testing due to the high cost of the program – $50 million annually – and because Florida met all Federal Clean-Air standards.
