Valley Clean Air Now is offering free emissions testing for Central Valley drivers, and offering vouchers to help cover the cost of repairs for the first 525 vehicles that don’t pass the test.
The Tune In and Tune Up Event is scheduled from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Kern County Fairgrounds, in the South P Street parking lot. Gates open at 6:30 a.m.
The event is first come, first served.
If a vehicle does not pass the emissions test, but can be repaired, Valley CAN will provide a voucher for up to $500 in repairs for the first 525 qualifying vehicles, organizers said.
In order to qualify for the free tests, drivers will need to have owned their vehicles for at least six months.
Free food and drinks will also be provided, while supplies last, organizers said.
Diesel vehicles do not qualify for the emissions test or voucher program.
