What Is a Smog Test?
Getting a smog test, or smog check, is a state-assigned procedure. It is an inspection of your vehicle's emission system. This test can be performed at a licensed smog testing facility. Not only does it ensure your vehicle is minimizing its pollutant emissions, helping the environment of Eureka, CA, Arcata, CA, Fortuna, CA, Garberville, CA, and beyond, but a smog test can also verify that your car is running at optimal performance. Therefore, getting a smog test at the designated interval that your state recommends is important. Some states also require you by law to get a smog test for your vehicle. So, when it is time to get a smog check, be sure to do so to avoid facing any consequences, like not getting your vehicle registration renewed and possibly getting fined. If your check engine lights are on, it is often an automatic fail for a smog test.
Where Can I Get a Smog Test?
There are two types of smog stations where you can get a smog test. A smog-test-only station is authorized to only perform regular smog inspections, but this station is not certified to perform emission repairs. Test and repair stations, on the other hand, are approved by the Bureau of Automotive Repairs to inspect, repair, and certify all vehicles, whether it is a Audi, Volkswagen, BMW, Mini Cooper, or any other make.
