RapidScreen

What is RapidScreen and how does it work?

Beginning in July 2012, our RapidScreen vans will travel throughout Northeast Ohio and will be remotely scanning vehicles as they drive by. If the vehicle records two clean RapidScreen readings within a nine-month window in the year prior to its registration renewal date, the owner will receive a notification in the mail and on the vehicle’s registration renewal application.

To ensure accurate and uncontaminated readings, the emissions limits for RapidScreen are stricter than those of a standard tailpipe emissions test. Therefore, it is possible to fail to meet RapidScreen’s strict qualifications, but still be able to pass an emissions inspection at a testing facility. If your vehicle fails to meet RapidScreen’s strict qualifications, the need for a standard emissions test will be indicated on your registration renewal application.

Only about five percent of vehicles will pass or qualify to be screened by RapidScreen.

How do I know if I was screened?

If your vehicle is really clean and has passed RapidScreen's emissions qualifications, you will receive a notification in the mail and on your vehicle’s registration renewal application. You also can see if your vehicle has qualified by clicking on the "View My History" button on the right side of this page.  If you see the word “Compliance” in the Result column for your vehicle’s most recent test, that will indicate your vehicle has successfully passed the new RapidScreen roadside vehicle emissions test and does not require further E-Check testing for this vehicle registration cycle.  In this case, please proceed with the registration renewal process without taking your vehicle to an E-Check testing facility.
