Why You Need Professional Care
California DMV requires vehicles to pass a smog inspection every two years. Our licensed technicians' are prepared to complete vehicle smog checks, diagnostics, and repairs.
What Happens During A Smog Check?
For the purposes of renewing your vehicle registration, please bring your vehicle, the DMV renewal notice and some form of accepted payment with you to your Smog Check appointment.
When executing a smog check, your vehicle is connected to equipment that is also attached to the BAR (Bureau of Automotive Repair). Results are then electronically transmitted to the DMW upon the completion of testing. For your records, our experts provide you with a VIR (Vehicle Inspection Report). If your vehicle passes the testing, you continue your registration with the DMV. Should your vehicle fails the smog check, our team is there to help you diagnose and resolve the problem.
Some drivers prefer to visit the auto shop only when it is absolutely necessary. While this approach might seem like it’s saving you money, it’s actually putting your vehicle at risk of developing extremely costly problems. Cars need regular maintenance to stay in top condition. Skipping over essential services and visits to save money neglects your vehicle’s needs and leaves crucial systems to degrade. Eventually, unchecked wear will cause damage that impedes vehicle performance or safety. You might breakdown on the side of the road because of an issue that could have been easily handled ahead of time by a professional.
Our team encourages drivers to visit our shop routinely for their vehicle’s basic service needs. We guarantee it’s the stress-free and affordable approach to car care!
