For more than 20 years, the certified technicians at Dekra Emission Check have done one thing and done it well: superfast Georgia-state vehicle-emissions tests. Although most patrons choose to stay in the car and alphabetize their eight-track collection during the typically five-minute inspection, many of the growing list of almost 30 Atlanta-area locations feature an indoor lounge for auto owners to kick back in. If a vehicle’s emissions exceed the regulated limit, the team advises drivers of their options and performs a free retest at a later date.
Since its creation in 1925, Dekra Emission Check’s umbrella company, Dekra, has grown to include more than 30,000 employees in 50 countries. In addition to having performed more than three million vehicle inspections in the United States, the larger business offers services such as expert appraisals, industrial product testing and certifications, and management-system certifications.
