What is the California Smog Check program?

The California Smog Check Program was initially implemented in 1984 to reduce air pollution in California by ensuring that vehicles are repaired in accordance with state and federal requirements. The program subjects vehicles to a biannual inspection to ensure that they meet the guidelines set by the state.

There are some exemptions from the Smog Check program. Gasoline Vehicles less than 6 model years old are exempt from the program (4 model years for change of ownership), unless the vehicle is coming to California from out of state. 1975 and older gasoline vehicles are also exempt from this program. 1998 and newer diesel vehicles weighing more than 14,000 GVWR require a biannual smog inspection as well (no 6 year exemption).

Here at Smog Hut Star Station we can smog any vehicle that requires a smog check per the DMV. We smog sedans, pickup trucks, vans, SUVs, and RVs. We also offer smog checks on diesel vehicles under 14,000 GVWR. If you are unsure of something, feel free to give us a call to clarify.

The DMV renewal notice will let you know if a Smog Check is required to register your car, and when it needs one. In California most vehicles need their smog checked every two years regardless of where they live or what type of insurance policy applies (in order for them not be uninsured)

Smog checks are required for all vehicles that want to be registered in California. The type of smogs you need depends on your car’s model year and whether or not it was originally licensed out-of state before coming into this state, as well some other factors too!

Examined certified stations are licensed by the state to perform only tests on vehicles. They cannot offer any repair services and Gross Polluters can also be certified at these test Only Stations.

Smog checks are important because they help to ensure that your vehicle is legal and operating properly. The first thing you should do before taking the car in for its annual smogged check-up will be giving it a good 15 minutes of driving around town, which helps keep all those emissions components warm so they’re less likely than not register as an issue during testing time!

To find out more about a vehicle’s past, refer to California Bureau of Automotive Repair website where you can enter license plate or (Vehicle Identification Number) VIN.
