A. The Administration may grant a time extension for a vehicle owner to comply with the requirements of this chapter. An extension may be granted only if the Administration determines that the vehicle owner has made good faith efforts to have the vehicle inspected or repaired and circumstances have developed which are beyond the reasonable control of the vehicle owner. An extension shall be of the shortest duration possible, as determined by the Administration.
B. The Administration may grant a time extension for a vehicle registered in the emissions inspection area but operated in or assigned to an area outside of the emissions inspection area. The vehicle owner shall present the vehicle for inspection upon its return to the emissions inspection area.
