AirCheck Texas has initiated the Drive a Clean Machine Program which provides financial assistance to Texas drivers who want to trade their old, environmentally harmful, cars in for newer energy efficient models. The program strives to remove as many high-emission and fuel inefficient vehicles from the road by making greener options affordable.
How it Works
Every approved Drive a Clean Machine applicant receives a voucher from AirCheck worth up to $3,500 toward the purchase of an energy efficient vehicle, until the program’s available funds are depleted. Some applications that do not qualify for the car replacement program may receive an exhaust repair voucher worth up to $600. Vouchers can be used at AirCheck Texas authorized dealerships.
You and your car must meet the Drive a Clean Machine Program requirements in order to receive a replacement voucher. The program applies to passenger cars and trucks that are gasoline powered, and are either at least ten years old or have failed an emissions test in the month proceeding the application. Your vehicle has to be registered in the counties of Bend, Brazoria, Fort, Galveston, Harris, or Montgomery. Lastly, you have to meet AirCheck’s income restrictions and guidelines in order to qualify for the program. Submit applications with a registration form, a copy of your car’s most recent vehicle inspection report, and proof of income for you and every other working adult in your household.
