Speedemissions To Add Vehicle Registration Services

Atlanta-based Speedemissions Inc. — operator of 43 vehicle emissions testing and safety inspection locations in Atlanta, Houston, St. Louis and Salt Lake City — has established a joint venture called Retail Vehicle Registration LLC (RVR). Once the program is established, Speedemission customers will be able to renew a car’s registration while having their emissions tested or inspection completed, avoiding having to stand in line at the local department of motor vehicles. Consumers will pay a fee to RVR for this service.

RVR was formed as a result of a joint venture agreement between Speedemissions and Harlen Hagdel, CEO of Wisconsin License Centers. Under Hagdel’s leadership, Wisconsin became one of the first states to offer car owners the ability to register their vehicles in other retail locations.

“Set-up for the services should take about three to six months, with beta testing to begin immediately thereafter,” said Rich Parlontieri, president and CEO of Speedemissions. “We’ll do testing in various locations to ensure complete viability of the program before the official launch. We are eager to introduce this program, as it benefits all parties involved, and see this as another value-added offering for our customers, as well as a step toward increasing revenue and income.”
