This situation occurs when a vehicle that is or will be registered in the New York Metropolitan Area (NYMA) requires a diesel emissions inspection, but is in a county where the diesel emissions inspection is not available.

You can obtain a Temporary Certificate of Inspection Waiver. This temporary certificate allows you to get a safety inspection in the county where the vehicle is located. You are then required to get a diesel emissions inspection and sticker within 10 days after the vehicle returns to the NYMA. You can get the waiver form from a local DMV office.

To locate diesel emissions inspection stations in your current county, enter the current county as the county of registration.
