I purchased a car a few days ago, and after getting insurance, I took it to the emissions to get it tested. It ended up getting a Fail 2 on Readiness, so I then took it to a mechanic in my area to have it looked at. His reply was to put more mileage on it for about 60-80 miles, then bring it back to have it looked at again. On my way home, I got pulled over for not having a tag. I showed the officers the emissions form along with proof of insurance and, when asked, explained that I had left the auto shop, but they issued me a citation for not registering the car.
