Hardship Failure Extension

New Economic Hardship Failure Extension

Important Program Changes & Updates for Emissions Repairers

Changes to Waiver Thresholds

The new repair expenditure thresholds to qualify for an emissions waiver are:

  • 5 model years old or newer = $1050
  • More than 5 and less than 10 years = $850
  • More than 10 model years old = $750

To qualify for a waiver, motorists must schedule an appointment at a Motorist Assistance Center (MAC) to get their vehicles evaluated after failing a re-test. Only those vehicles repaired by registered emissions repair technicians are eligible for a waiver.

An economic hardship failure extension may be granted for vehicles that fail inspection, and have an estimate to repair or replace a single component that is more than 1.5 times the waiver expenditure threshold. To receive the extension, the motorist will need to make an appointment at a MAC to have that vehicle evaluated. The extension is valid for one year (to allow the motorist time to budget for repairs), and the vehicle must pass the next inspection cycle. Complete details on the economic hardship failure extension are available in the updated Mass Module and on the website.
