Vehicle testing centers to close for Independence Day

Staff Reports • Updated Jul 3, 2014 at 11:56 AM

Vehicle emissions testing centers in Wilson County will close Friday and Saturday in celebration of Independence Day. All stations will resume testing Monday.

“Customer service remains a top priority for us,” said Prentiss Taylor, program manager for the Tennessee Vehicle Inspection program administrated by Envirotest Systems. “Planning ahead means less time waiting in line and more time enjoying the beautiful, Tennessee summer.”

Taylor recommends visiting the testing facilities on Wednesdays and Thursdays, when testing volume is usually lighter, and to avoid testing in the final days of the month.

Envirotest, the world’s leading provider of vehicle emissions testing and inspection, has a contract with the State of Tennessee to test vehicles for the improvement of air quality in four Middle Tennessee counties, in addition to Hamilton County (Chattanooga), as required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to meet the Clean Air Act.

“Vehicle emissions testing has proven effective in helping Tennessee improve its air quality,” Taylor said.

Normal hours of operation and testing center locations in Wilson County (Lebanon) stations are open Monday and Tuesday 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Wednesday through Friday 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. They are closed Sunday.
