If you have an obd II scanner, you can check the readiness codes of the monitors set. So if you wanted to borrow or get a cheap obd II type scan tool, you could then check the readiness monitors and as soon as they all set immediately drive it straight back to the inspection station and it should pass. Usually after driving an hour or so, or cranking the truck a few times from cold and getting it warm and driving it 15 minutes or so will set the monitors to ready and it will pass emissions inspection. Let me know if you have any further questions. Thank you.
