I have an older car that most likely will not pass emissions. I plan on moving to Chicago in July of this year. My car is registered in TN, where I live. I will maintain this address as well when I move. But, I NEED to have a drivers license in the state i work in for my profession. I will notify my insurance about my move.
So now that you have that info, Can I get a drivers license in IL, have car insurance in IL, maintain my residency and also my car registration in TN?
I would change everything over if my car was worth more than the repair cost to pass emissions, but it isn’t. My car is completely sound and looks great otherwise, so theres no reason to get rid of it. If it’s really illegal to have a DL and registration in different states, I’m just going to have to pick somewhere else to move without emissions testing.
I was told by my spouse that theres no way it would pass emissions. I trust her since she is from there. But any info you have on why a car would fail emissions that is under a 800 dollar fix is useful… but I’ve been told it’s more expensive than that.
Thanks in advance!
