Vehicle emissions testing centers in Hamilton County (Chattanooga) will operate during special hours for the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.
Testing centers will be closed on Tuesday, Dec. 24, and Wednesday, Dec. 25, for the Christmas holiday, with all stations to resume testing on Thursday, Dec. 26, at their regular scheduled hours.
Additionally, all Hamilton County vehicle emissions testing centers will close on Wednesday, Jan. 1, for the New Year’s holiday, and will resume testing on Thursday, Jan. 2, at their regular scheduled hours. All testing centers will remain open until 3 p.m. on New Year’s Eve, Tuesday, Dec. 31.
“Planning ahead helps keep waiting to a minimum,” said Prentiss Taylor, program manager for the Tennessee vehicle inspection program administered by Envirotest Systems. “It’s a good idea to take vehicles mid-week when testing volume is usually lighter and to avoid testing in the final days of the month.”

5206 Austin Road and 720 Eastgate Loop are open Tuesday-Friday from 7 a.m.-6 p.m., and for both locations, Saturday 7 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Closed Sunday and Monday.
