Simple. If the car is 25 years or older, no tests. Our 89 Milano is done, as is the 91S, and the 94LS, which easily passed it's test this summer, will also not have to go again, as the schedule is a test every two years if less than 25 years old.
Have never had an Alfa fail the WA tests, which is basically just a probe up the tail pipe for test at idle and at 2500 rpm. Nothing else. No lifting of the hood, etc. The criteria for passing is for the year of manufacture. One year, the tester laughingly asked if the Milano was actually running it was so clean.
