 AirCheckTexas Drive a Clean Machine Program

North Central Texas Region

The program continues to accept repair applications. Applications may be submitted by fax or mail and will be processed in the order they are received. Repair applications are processed and response letters are mailed within 5 business days or less from the date received.

The program is not accepting vehicle replacement applications at this time.  The 82nd Texas Legislature reduced funding for the AirCheckTexas Drive a Clean Machine Program by 88% earlier this year restricting the replacement component of the program.  The program may resume replacement assistance for a limited period in 2012; however, an exact date has not been determined and you will need to apply at that time if you wish to be considered for replacement assistance. 

Visit this website for the most current program information including when the program expects to resume replacement assistance.

The AirCheckTexas Drive a Clean Machine Program is designed to help vehicle owners comply with vehicle emissions standards by offering financial incentives to repair vehicles, and allows local residents to contribute to the regional air quality solution.


If your vehicle is registered in Collin, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Johnson, Kaufman, Parker, Rockwall, or Tarrant County and your vehicle has failed the state emissions test within the past 30 days, you may be eligible for a voucher up to $600 for emissions repair assistance.
