Hello, and thank you for your question. I am Brandon - Hyundai.

You will need to drive the vehicle in a daily traffic condition. Meaning stop and go traffic condition for 30 miles after it is warmed up. The emission device will eventually be ready. My word of advice drive the car in the inspection when it is fully warmed up.

Try to drive in a slow speed in the 30 MPH - 20 mph in the local road.

Let me know if you have further question. Please rate me positive, thank you.
