DEFERRAL INSTRUCTIONS AND APPLICATION
Please read these instructions in their entirety before proceeding with your application!
If your vehicle is registered in Utah, but temporarily located outside of the State, you may request an emissions deferral from the Department to renew your vehicle registration. This can be done by completing the application below and submitting the supporting documents that verify the vehicle is currently located outside the State.
If the vehicle is located within 60 miles of a jurisdiction where emission testing is available (section A) then only a passing emissions test from that jurisdiction will be accepted by the department. To find out if you are located within 60 miles of a testing jurisdiction please see the instructions labeled “Section A”. If the vehicle is located more than 60 miles from a jurisdiction where emission testing is available then alternative supporting documents can be accepted. Please proceed to “Section B”
This is a “web-based” process, all supporting documents must be in PDF or Image (.jpg, .png) format and less than 10MB in file size.
