Drive Clean Testing Program
When you receive the notice saying your car must pass the Ontario Drive Clean
emissions test before you can get your new license plate sticker ... relax. Carcone's
Automotive Repair Service is an accredited Drive Clean test & repair facility. We'll
make the inspection trouble-free for you, and have you on your way without delay.
Here's what will take place, and how easy it will be:
On January 1, 2013, Ontario
introduced important changes to the emissions test to make
the Drive Clean program even better. The new test takes
advantage of the computerized monitoring equipment in
today’s technologically advanced vehicles.
The modernized Drive Clean
program will provide significant benefits by:
- Providing a faster, more
accurate emissions test;
- Identifying vehicles
with emissions systems failures before they become gross
- Identifying emissions
systems problems for more effective repairs;
- Reducing more
smog-causing pollutants from vehicle emissions; and
- Minimizing fraud.

2014 vehicle owners will pay five dollars less for their Drive Clean
The Drive Clean test is a routine
undertaking for the skilled technicians at Carcone's Automotive Repair Service. And at
only $35.00, it's affordable for every motorist, and a small price we can all pay to help
safeguard our environment.
Are you familiar with the shocking statistics concerning pollution that were released
by the Ontario Medical Association (OMA)? They say air pollutants in Ontario kill 1900
people, and result in 9,800 hospital admissions, 13,000 emergency room visits and 47
million sick days for employees. That's in only one year! And they found a particularly
strong correlation between occurrences of childhood asthma and exposure to pollutants from
motor vehicles. It's all so very tragic and sad.
Findings like those in the OMA study make all of us here at Carcone's Automotive Repair
Service proud to represent Ontario's Drive Clean Program in the Richmond Hill area. We
hope to make the Drive Clean experience an easy one for you. Please call us to schedule a
convenient time for your vehicle's test soon after receiving the notice from the Ministry
of Transportation. That way we can all breathe a little easier.
