Vehicle testing to close Jan. 20, reopen Jan. 21
Vehicle emissions testing centers in Sumner, Rutherford, Wilson and Williamson counties in Middle Tennessee will close on Monday, Jan. 20 in recognition of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. All stations will resume testing on Tuesday, Jan. 21 at their regular scheduled hours.
“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.”
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 for Middle Tennessee are:
· Rutherford County (Murfreesboro), Sumner County (Gallatin), Williamson County (Franklin) and 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. Closed Sunday.
· The Smyrna Station is open Monday and Tuesday 7 a.m.to 6 p.m. and Wednesday through Friday 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Closed Saturday and Sunday.
