Ontario is proposing changes to Drive Clean testing that would save drivers time and money, while continuing to protect the environment.
The changes would exempt all vehicles — cars, trucks and buses — less than seven years old from being tested as part of their registration renewal.
Any vehicle plated as historic would be exempted too. They would also exempt vehicles such as passenger cars, vans and SUVs from being tested if the vehicle is:
*Being transferred between family members
*Coming off lease and being purchased by the person who was leasing the vehicle
*Having its registration renewed and passed a test in the previous year.
*The proposed exemptions would come into effect September 1, 2011.
