Can you clear codes to pass emissions?

No, to pass an OBD-II emissions test the catalyst and EVAP monitors need time to run. If it’s not in a “ready” state, your vehicle will automatically fail. If you clear the ‘Check Engine’ light, or reset the OBD-II monitors right before your emissions test, your vehicle will not have time to enter Ready status and your vehicle will automatically fail the emissions test.
