Introduced in the 1970s as part of the Clean Air Act, smog checks are especially beneficial to California. With so many vehicles on the road, it's important to find viable ways to preserve our air and environment. Regular emissions testing reduces smog, keeps pollutants out of the air, and contributes to a healthier state.
During a smog check, our team will test your vehicle’s exhaust system to ensure it is not emitting too many pollutants or too much smog into the environment. Equipped with special tools designed for emissions testing, we will measure the amount of emissions your vehicle produces and compare the amount to California’s standards.
