Emission testing halted in Salt Lake and Weber counties after technical problems

You can get a temporary permit if you need an emission test for your vehicle.

Technical issues have caused emission testing for vehicles in Salt Lake and Weber counties to be temporarily halted, according to a news release from the Utah State Tax Commission.

A software program that provides emission testing in those counties had a data problem on Wednesday that forced testing to be shut down. All application interfaces using the program, including the Department of Motor Vehicles, were turned off as a precaution. The program vendor is investigating the outage.

If your vehicle needs an emission test for registration or registration renewal, you can get a temporary permit at a DMV office or online at https://secure.utah.gov/rex/index.html.
