Motorists required to pass an emissions test to renew their vehicle registration do not need to rush to the testing facilities.
Gov. Eric Holcomb previously set May 22 as the new expiration date for all driver’s licenses, state identification cards and vehicle registrations that expired on or after the public health emergency began March 6, and couldn’t be renewed online.
Separately, the Hammond Clean Air Car Check station will be used from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday as a COVID-19 testing site for Lake County residents, in conjunction with the Lake County Health Department and Methodist Hospitals.
A doctor’s order is not required for the free test, but patients should be symptomatic for the coronavirus. Symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, headache, muscle pain, chills, and loss of smell or taste.
Appointments are not necessary and registration will be completed on-site. Patients should bring their health insurance card if they have one.
