 Smog Check in Santa Rosa, CA

California requires most vehicles to undergo a smog check once every two years. If you’ve received your renewal notice in the mail, visit BNC Auto Care on 164 Calistoga Rd. for a smog check. We are proud to serve the smog and emission inspection needs of drivers in Santa Rosa, Rohnert Park, and Sebastopol, CA, including surrounding areas.

Smog checks were introduced in the 1970s as part of the Clean Air Act. Smog checks are especially helpful in California, where an exorbitant amount of vehicles exists. Regular emissions testing reduces excessive smog, keeps pollutants out of the air, and contributes to a healthier state.

Smog Check at BNC Auto Care

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.

Smog checks are required for many CA vehicles, including:

  • Most vehicles manufactured after 1997.
  • Diesel vehicles with a Gross Vehicle Weight (GVWR) less than 14,000 lbs.
  • Natural gas powered vehicles less than 14,000 lbs

If your vehicle needs a smog check, put our team to work. We’ll carefully check your car’s emissions and help you determine whether repairs are necessary.

Facts About CA Smog Checks

  • Many counties in California require smog checks.
  • With a few exceptions, you need to produce the current smog certification when transferring a vehicle.
  • If your vehicle is 6 years old or less, you can bypass the smog check and pay an annual $20 abatement fee instead
  • Drivers need to register their vehicles within 90 days of receiving their “smog certificate,” the paper detailing the results of the emissions test.
  • Your renewal notice from the California DMV will tell you where you can go to have a smog check performed.

Smog checks improve air quality in California significantly. Be sure to get your smog check and emissions inspection soon after you receive your notice. At BNC Auto Care, we’re happy to check your smog levels when you need to know where your vehicle stands. Call or visit our Calistoga Rd. location today!
