I surely hope we don't have emissions testing in NC, but in case we do, what years does it apply to? 2000 and older or?

Yes, NC has both safety and emissions testing. See NCDOT Division of Motor Vehicles: Vehicle Requirements for details.

As noted by the web link that "rfb" provided, some counties require emissions testing, while others do not. At the moment, it's about half and half.

1996 and newer....they don't do the tail pipe test but they do plug the machine into your ECM's diagnostic port and check for codes. They also perform a safety inspection
1995 to 1974....safety check only (lights, wipers, horn, etc)
1973 and older.....they don't check your car....you're considered inspection exempt.

I have a similar question to ask. I am wondering where I can find information about different counties' requirement on emission testing.

I am moving from Durham to Chapel Hill. If both counties require emissions testing, do I still need to have a emissions testing?
