What are the KS emissions or smog check requirements for vehicle registration? Kansas
KS Smog and Emissions Testing RequirementsMany states make passing a smog check as part of the vehicle registration process, but no such mandate exists in Kansas.
Only a few select communities offer emissions testing, but purely on a voluntary basis. In Wichita, for example, the city, as part of its Air Quality Awareness Program, provides emissions testing several times a year, allowing motorists to voluntarily have their vehicles checked for tailpipe emissions and fuel cap gas leaks.
These smog inspections, regardless of the results, have no bearing on a vehicle's registration status.
As is, the Kansas car registration process is relatively "inspection free." The DOR only requires a VIN inspection for newly acquired cars with out-of-state titles or bill of sales, as well as certain antique models, before finishing the register car process. These inspections, which cost $10, are conducted by the Kansas Highway Patrol (KHP).
