Will not pass emissions

You can check the below link to see if your vehicle has a current valid passing vehicle emissions inspection report (VIR). The Georgia VIR is what you give the county tag office to get your tag. To go to the Georgia emission test website and reprint your VIR just click this link: Get a free copy of the emissions test.
Who has to follow the emissions law? Every dealership, auction house and even a private party has to follow the emissions law. If a gas powered vehicle will be registered by the buyer in one of the 13 clean air  counties it must have a current valid VIR. It does not matter what county the vehicle is being sold in, it is where the vehicle will be registered. The form MV1 should show the county address you gave the dealer.
What are the 13 clean air counties in Georgia? Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, Coweta, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry, Paulding and Rockdale.
Are vehicles sold “as is” exempt from the emissions requirement? No. “As is” still means the vehicle must have a current valid passing emissions inspection report (VIR). Don’t let a dealer tell you otherwise.
