I needed to get my car smog checked for registration purposes and I'm glad that I chose to come to Smogster. They've really adapted to 2020 conditions. I didn't have an appointment but fortunately there was only one car ahead of me. You can stay in your car the whole time. The process was quick and easy. I pulled into the bay, passed my registration paperwork to the technician, who was wearing a mask, through the window. Listened to the radio for a minutes and it was a done. They take contactless payment but you do have to go into their office to pay. It was quick though, less than one minute.

Excellent service, we didn't pass the first smog test but came back. Didn't pass that time either but they didn't charge us until we passed the third test. Humble business with a passion for their customers!

The California Smog Check Program requires vehicles that were manufactured in 1976 or later to participate in the biennial (every two years) smog check program in participating counties.[1] The program’s stated aim is to reduce air pollution from vehicles by ensuring that cars with excessive emissions are repaired in accordance with federal and state guidelines. With some exceptions, gas-powered vehicles that are six years old or newer are not required to participate; instead, these vehicles pay a smog abatement fee for the first 6 years in place of being required to pass a smog check. The six-year exception does not apply to nonresident (previously registered out-of-state) vehicles being registered in California for the first time, diesel vehicles 1998 model or newer and weighing 14,000 lbs or less,[2][3] or specially constructed vehicles 1976 and newer.[3] The program is a joint effort between the California Air Resources Board, the California Bureau of Automotive Repair, and the California Department of Motor Vehicles.

A Smog Check is not required for electric, diesel powered manufactured before 1998 or weighing over 14,000 lbs, trailers, motorcycles, or gasoline powered vehicles 1975 or older.[4] In April 2015, hybrid vehicles became subject to smog check requirements.[5]

Although vehicles 1975 and older are not required to get a smog check, owners of these vehicles must still ensure that their emissions systems are intact.[citation needed]

Anyone wishing to sell a vehicle that is over four years old must first have a smog check performed. It is the seller’s responsibility to get the smog certificate prior to the sale. If the vehicle is registered in California and was acquired from a spouse, domestic partner, sibling, child, parent, grandparent, or grandchild it is exempt.[4]

Failed Smog Repairs

Many states require smog inspection as part of the car registration process. People who fail smog tests, a procedure for measuring the pollutant emissions of an engine, are usually unsure about the next steps to take. Here’s a simple guide on the available options to consider after failing a smog test.

Get a Waiver

Check to see if you may be eligible to receive a waiver. The emissions test waiver was created to allow some vehicles to pass smog inspection even if they did not meet requirements. The reason is because not everyone is able to pay for the repairs necessary to pass an emissions test. In an effort to curb the costs of passing the test, credit is given for a fixed spending amount on repairs. An automatic pass is given to individuals who spend all their credit but still fail.

There are typically three type of waivers: cost, economic hardship, and functional diagnosis. The cost waiver indicates that you spent a substantial amount of money on repairs but still cannot meet requirements. The economic hardship indicates you have no other assets to pay for the repairs. The functional diagnosis waiver claims there are no other possible repairs to meet emission requirements. Waiver limits and qualifications vary by state. Find out if you are eligible to receive an emission test waiver from your local DMV.

Maintain Your Vehicle

There are multiple car parts you should focus on maintaining to improve your chances of passing the smog test. Change the spark plugs, air filter, fuel filter, PCV valve, and oil regularly. You should also check the the ignition timing and adjust the carburetor in your engine if you have an older vehicle. Try filling up your fuel tank with gasoline that contains 10 percent ethanol alcohol. This can help to lower your emissions. The temperature of your vehicle before the test is also important. The car should be at a normal temperature so that the oxygen sensor and catalytic converter can minimize emissions.

A failed smog test should not discourage car owners from taking the necessary steps to pass. Follow this guide and you will be on your way to passing the next smog inspection
