|Fees||Service ; The cost of a Drive Clean test depends on:

-the type of test (first-time test or a re-test)
Light-duty vehicles: Up to $30 (plus tax)
Heavy-duty vehicles: Each facility sets its own fees. Applicable taxes are extra.
Re-test fees (light-duty vehicles): Up to $17.50 per test, if it is done at the same facility that performed the initial test.
$30 (plus tax) if the re-test is performed:
-more than 120 days after the initial test
-after 2 re-tests at $17.50 each
