I took it for about 15 minutes of full-throttle runs in the neighborhood, and then returned to pass with ease.
Good point, mine failed the first time I tested it and I think that may have been the issue. I just stopped by on the way home from my normal commute and failed.

The next time I ran it on the Interstate for 20 minutes and did some 2nd gear pulls just before I got to the station, passed with no adjustments or modifications. I also called the test station owner to make sure there wasn't a line.
