Smog checks were introduced in the 1970s as part of the Clean Air Act. Smog checks are mandatory in California due to the high number of registered vehicles in the state.
Smog checks are required for many CA vehicles, including:
Regular emissions testing reduces excessive smog, keeps pollutants out of the air, and contributes to a healthier state.
During a smog check, a licensed technician tests your exhaust system to make sure it doesn't emit too many pollutants (smog) into the environment. Using a special emissions testing tool that also connects to the Bureau of Automotive Repair (BAR), the technician measures the amount of emissions your vehicle produces and compares this amount to legal standard.
When testing completes, results are electronically sent to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and we provide you with a Vehicle Inspection Report (VIR). We advise keeping the VIR as part of your records.
Once you pass the smog test, you may register your vehicle.
If you fail the smog test, you have several options:
You need to bring your vehicle to a certified Smog Check Repair Station for service. You're welcome to choose Mr. Auto Center for this service. Once repairs are made, you must re-test the vehicle.
California provides up to $500 for emissions service if you meet eligibility requirements. See the Consumer Assistance Program for more information.
If you don't wish to repair your vehicle, you may retire it for up to $1,500 at a state-approved dismantler
Smog checks improve air quality in California significantly. Be sure to get your smog test after you receive your notice. Call (310) 604-9966 or visit us today!
