What You Need to Know About California Smog Checks

Most gas-powered vehicles made after 1976 require regular smog checks, but there are some exceptions. If your car is six model years or newer, you are not required to undergo this test every other year like older model cars. However, if your car is Diesel-powered and from 1988 or after, you require regular smog checks without exception.

If you meet the smog check requirements, you will need to be inspected every other year. You’ll need to bring your DMV registration form with you when getting a smog check from Davies Auto Care, to make sure the results are properly categorized and recorded. Our mechanics will help you through the entire process, to make sure your car is in good hands and to ensure that you have all the information you need.
