No, its last required testing is this year. The OP will discover this when he goes to get his annual sticker.
In Ontario, you get your sticker renewal notice about 90 days in advance, giving you lots of time to get something done about it.

Wrong. There is no such DriveClean definition as "antique". Read the DriveClean website's description. The ONLY allowance for emissions exemption for a post-'87 car is "historic vehicle". And with the advent of Premier McSquinty, THEY tell YOU what constitutes a "historic vehicle. Simply achieving 30 years old does *NOT* make a car ipso facto exempt from smog checks.
Now if we throw McSquinty's Commies out in the next election, maybe we can coax the the next bunch of wanna-be despots into reinstating the 20- year rolling exemption... Hey guys, remember this at the polls.

whoops.. yes it needs its final test this year, after which it is excempt..

Antique status.. historic status ... close enough.. the end result is the same and there is a provision under the "highway traffic act" to allow for such a status..

model years from all test requirements when they reach 30 years of age, if they receive designation as historic vehicles under the Highway Traffic Act."
"A historic vehicle is defined in Regulation 628 under the Highway Traffic Act. It is a specially-plated motor vehicle "at least 30 years old" that is "operated on a highway only in parades, for purposes of exhibition, tours or similar functions organized by a properly constituted automobile club, or for purposes of repair, testing or demonstration for sale" and is "substantially unchanged or unmodified from the original manufacturer's product".
Owners of a vehicle at least 30 years old can also apply to the Ministry of Transportation to attach Year of Manufacture plates to the vehicle. The Year of Manufacture plates are Ontario number plates that were issued during the year of manufacture of the motor vehicle. Vehicles with a Year of Manufacture licence plate are not restricted in their operation and have the same privileges as a standard passenger licence plate.
More information on Year of Manufacture Plates can be obtained from the Ministry of Transportation."
