On January 1, 2005, the TLC implemented a new emissions test at its Woodside Inspection Facility. The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) are requiring this new test, On Board Diagnostics II (OBD II), in order to comply with state and federal mandates for clean air. In conjunction with the DMV and the DEC, the TLC hosted two information sessions. Below you can find information on OBD II, failure criteria under the standard OBD II test, and steps that you can take to prevent an emissions test failure.
