We covered this before Cedros if you will search this site.  We used S&S auto (Allen) as we did not want to drive to Ocotlan for various reasons.  They did everything for us from making the appointment, paying and, of course, taking the car/s for us.  It was very simple.  If you want more specific information please send me a pm.

Gracias.

I searched and it doesn't come up. I like to drive to Ocotlan. I prefer to do it myself. You can't seem to get out of May.

We decided to wait a few months and see what happens

And if you want to select any month AFTER what is shown, click the single arrow above the calendar to move it forward to the next month. Just know that the date that you select, MUST have payment made within X number of days after selection or the appointment will be cancelled.

Do a search using "emission " and click on posts for 2022 for more information about S&S. You can also send me a pm as we took 2 cars to them, one as recent as 2 weeks ago.

I paid first then made my appointment.   Easy

It sounds like the trick might be to pay first and then get an appointment

1700 which included 500 for the actual test.  

Expensive to do it that way. Better off to do it yourself if you  can. And you drive out to some interesting countryside

You have no idea the reasons people may need someone to drive their cars for them for the test.

I went for my appointment to Ocotlan yesterday.  The scenery is beautiful, mostly pastoral.  I left at 8:30 for my 10 AM appointment.  Arrived at 9:30. Finished at 9:55, and back home at 11:20

How much did they charge?

What charge?  The cost of the inspection is $500 for everyone.

The price has gone up a lot. It used to be 300 pesos. 500 is a lot more

It is a whole new process   And, we haven't had to pay anything for a couple of years as testing was suspended while they built and started using the new testing facilities.  Almost everything has increased in price.

We'll see how it works out.
