By law, certain cars, vans, trucks, motorhomes and buses must pass a Drive Clean test before they can be licensed to be driven on Ontario roads.
The Drive Clean test determines if your vehicle meets Ontario emissions standards.
Active Green + Ross can provide a Drive Clean test at any one of its authorizied Drive Clean testing facilities.
Generally, you need to get the test every 2 years, once your vehicle is 7 years old.
Larger vehicles (called ‘heavy-duty’ vehicles) require the test every year, once they are 7 years old.
The Ministry of Transportation will notify you when your vehicle needs an emissions test, when you receive your vehicle registration renewal documents (either online or in the mail).
