    Vehicle Registration/Emissions Question

    Advertisements
    So his truck is registered in WI. We currently are in NC (pcs).

    His plates are due and he is required to do emissions on his truck. I'm having a pain in the ass time trying to figure out what to do. The Wisconsin DOT website either sucks or I'm not in a good navigation mode today. Does he fill out the "temporary exemption application" for emissions or do his testing here in NC? I have no clue.

    If he's going to keep his truck registered in WI then he needs to have proof that his car passses emissions in WI, if he gets it registered here then he needs to pass emissions here.

    So then he'd have to do his emissions testing here in NC and forward that info back home to renew his plates? Where do ya do? Is there an emissions testing center in NC? (not sure how they do things down here!)

    Im not exactly sure. When I went to college in Norfolk, VA and my car was registered under my dad in Woodbridge, VA all we had to do was change where it was garaged and that solved that. Since in Norfolk they didn't require emissions we were able to renew no problem. I would call the DMV and ask.

    There's one right on base, next to the auto shop.

    There's the vehicle registration contact information for lejeune, I'm sure you can call them tomorrow morning and they'll answer everything for you.

    I looked at the site, to me it looks like you would fill out the form and mail it in with your renewal. BUT to be on the safe side I would call.

    If this doesn't answer your question, then you best bet is to contact the DOT in Wisconsin...

    Ya that's where I was navigating. I think I'm going to call to double-check everything. It gave info on how you can renew your plates, but the links under that category don't give good info for when you're due for emissions.
