What is the process of obtaining a conditional pass from a drive clean test?
I have a 10 year old car that had a CEL come on 2 weeks ago. I brought it in and my mechanic did diagnostic Nd said that the catalytic converter needs to be replaced. It'll cost 800 bucks.
That is way too much money for me as my car is worth nothing and I'm looking to replace it late this year. My mechanic isn't a registered drive clean facility so I need to go somewhere else.
I need to do emissions testing to renew my licence. I will probably fail once they find the p0420 code. I'm willing to pay 450 bucks for the conditional pass as opposed to 800... My question is, if I need a repair that costs over the repair cost limit, how do I obtain the pass? When the part is repaired, do I have to do a re test and pass emissions? Is it the facility that gives me the conditionals pass and only charges 460 bucks or do I have to go to the ministry?
