Depends on the State. PA testing is annual and a royal PIA because there's no regulated flat-rate there. It can be $45 (rare), it could be $59.99 or as much as $74.99-$100..whatever you agree to pay. You really have to shop around.
Now, in CT - Emissions Testing is done every 2 years, like CA. Once a vehicle is over 12 years old, it no longer needs to be Safety Inspected, just Emissions. And the flat-fee is currently only $20 for the test. And unlike in PA, we only have one sticker, not two stickers taking up limited windshield space.
