Pass your test at your local Mr. Lube

Certain vehicles registered in Ontario must pass a Drive Clean emissions test before licence plates and registrations can be renewed. These tests must be performed at an accredited facility by a certified inspector — and operators have to provide a test report afterwards. Fortunately, you can simply pay a visit to your closest Mr. Lube in Kitchener for a prompt, no-appointment-needed Drive Clean emission test. The test consists of an Onboard Diagnostic System (OBD) test for light-duty vehicles from 1998 onwards, or a tailpipe test for older light-duty vehicles and certain heavy-duty gasoline vehicles. Either way, the process starts with a pre-test check carried out by our certified technicians, who look for:

  • Missing gas cap or catalytic converter
  • Faults in the fuel filler pipe 
  • Onboard computer malfunctions that would interfere with the testing process 
  • Visible smoke emitting from the tailpipe

In addition, you'll find that your vehicle's warranty will remain intact with Mr. Lube's warranty-approved service*. We stick to manufacturer-recommended product specifications and service intervals, which ensures we do the right thing at the right time. We also make use of the latest technologies available, such as the Electronic Owner's Manual (EOM), which empowers us to personalize your maintenance needs and eliminate any unexpected surprises down the road. It's another reason why we're the convenient, affordable alternative to your dealer when it comes to emission tests in Kitchener.
