I believe it's required in the entire state. I have an '88 Caddy and it has to have one. It gets waived because I don't drive it enough to have the required mileage... under 7,500 or 5,000. I'm not sure where the cutoff is. I still get charged the fee. If you don't have 2 stickers on your windshield it's a reason for the cops to stop you.

Cumberland county is part of the south-central region participating in the emissions program so yes, you will need to get an emissions sticker.

Since you're in Cumberland county, they only test the gas cap and visually inspect for smog equipment. This includes the catalytic converter. If it "fell" off, you will fail.

If it belches smoke or the CEL is on, it will still pass.
