Default check engine light clear period

Hi Guys I have a 99 ranger 2.5 2wd. I had a check engine light on and the problem was fixed and it was cleared. How many miles do you have to drive before you go can back to the inspection station for a inspection retest? The guy told me once the check engine light goes out , the computer has to re learn the manufacturing codes by doing some city/highway driving. If I go back to early, the computer wont register at the inspection station and I will get charged another $29.00. You only get one chance at the retest. I have heard 25 miles to 100 miles. I live in Mass if that helps. Thank you

what you heard is right...i work at a toyota dealer and that is the average distance but sometimes you have to go a little longer or sometimes they reset early
