Station Signage

All emissions inspection stations must display a proper state-certified sign. If your station does not have a sign that meets state of Georgia specifications (including the proper GCAF logo, font, color and layout) or if your sign is severely damaged or faded, a replacement sign must be purchased.

Although GCAF recommends having an approved vendor modify your roadside sign, stations are allowed to change hours and price by attaching a magnetic strip to the sign or applying stick-on or magnetic letters. Blue or black colors must be used to make these changes.
