SMOG Test | Auto SolutionsAuto Solutions is now licensed to perform smog inspections as specified by the California Bureau of Auto Repairs. We are authorized to smog cars with model year 2000 and newer.  We are not authorized to do STAR inspections.   Results are electronically transferred to the DMV and the certification fee is included.  Service is normally quite fast and efficient. For the few minutes it takes, you can check out our newly redecorated waiting area with Wi-Fi.

When do you need a smog inspection?  When you receive a notification from the California DMV that you car registration is due for renewal, it will clearly state if your car is due for biennial smog test.  It will also clearly state if a STAR inspection is required.  You must have the Smog Check completed before you submit your car registration renewal.

 You must also have results of a smog test in order to sell your car.

Smog inspections are required UNLESS your vehicle is:

  • Gasoline powered 1975 model year or older;
  • Diesel powered 1997 model year and older or with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of more than 14,000 lbs;
  • Electric;
  • Natural gas powered with a GVWR rating of more than 14,000 lbs;
  • Motorcycle

What if your car fails inspection?  Your car must be repaired and re-tested before you can renew your vehicle registration.  Auto Solutions has been approved by The California Bureau of Automotive Repairs (BAR) to make such repairs.
