HOW LONG AFTER CLEARING CODES TO WAIT FOR SMOG TEST?

Ford Mustang

I took my 2000 Ford Mustang 3.7L in to read codes, then cleared (bad EGR) Then I went to have my Car smogged and they told me it passed, but that it had been to soon since clearing the codes (Smog test computer came back with " System's Not Ready" and told me I have to bring it back within a month (basically saying they won't let me pass until the " System's not ready' code clears - How long does that take, or how can I expedite this?

Thanks for any help I can get.

We don't have smog tests in Mississippi but we do have some cars that smog the mosquitos.

I would drive it for at least two tanks of gas and see if the check engine light comes on. If not you are good to go!
