Find a Testing Location
Visit the Choice Plus website at ohioecheck.info/locations to determine which testing location(s) you should visit using the vehicle's model and year. Unless otherwise posted, station hours are:
Monday through Friday: 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Saturday: 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
|CLOSED||Sunday and all state holidays|
Vehicles are tested on a first-come, first-served basis. No appointments are necessary.
The best times to visit a station are before 10 a.m. and after 3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. It is best to avoid the end of the month, the day after a holiday, and Mondays.
Emissions Testing in Other States
If a vehicle is registered in an Ohio E-Check county and is permanently, temporarily, or indefinitely housed out-of-state, it is not exempt from the Ohio E-Check requirements. If the vehicle is located in a state with a testing program, you must test the vehicle and send the vehicle's original passing test certificate, a readable copy of the vehicle's registration and an Ohio E-Check Exemption/Extension application [PDF] to Ohio EPA.
