SMOG Checks in California
SMOG checks in California are increasingly complicated. Whereas there were originally only SMOG stations, now the state has not only SMOG check stations but also SMOG check only stations as well as participants in the Bureau of Automotive Repair's STAR program. In addition, the machines and technology to verify SMOG compliance are constantly changing. With new machines can come new complexity and new regulatory requirements, however. Current confusions over which machines are required and often be resolved only by reaching out to persons with specialized knowledge, both on a technical and on an administrative level.
