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).


What Vehicles can we smog test?

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.
