ONE PERSON PER VEHICLE please, and MASKS are REQUIRED. Colorado's statewide mask mandate is followed at all Air Care Colorado locations. NO MASK, NO TEST.
(IF you have a medical condition that keeps you from wearing a mask, or if you are immunocompromised and want options or information regarding our safety processes, please call 303-456-7025 or email Comments@AirCareColorado.com.)
WAIT TIMES - We are currently not tracking wait times in the same way we did prior to the COVID shutdown. Wait times are longer as we do not have all stations operating at this time. However, despite the number of vehicles you may see lined up, the wait times are generally between 45 minutes and one hour. Early mornings are usually the busiest times. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
The Air Care Colorado Inspection and Maintenance (I/M) Program is a network of 18 stations conveniently located throughout the Denver-metropolitan area and the North Front Range. Additionally, 18 RapidScreen roadside data collection units are set up and rotated among state-approved locations throughout the program area.
Depending upon the vehicle, Air Care Colorado stations use three different testing methods to evaluate emissions as part of the overall emissions inspection. They are:
LOW PROFILE RIMS & OVERSIZED TIRES - Please note that front-wheel and all-wheel drive vehicles with low-profile rim sizes 17-inches-or-larger in diameter or vehicles with wheel sizes larger than 34 inches must be tested on special dynamometers capable of testing vehicles with these unusual features. Please take your vehicle to the Sheridan, Boulder, Ken Caryl or Fort Collins stations for inspection. These are the only stations in the program area equipped with specialized dynamometers that can test these vehicles.
