Below is a simple versions of what needs to be done. \015\012\015\012\015\012
  • \015\012\015\012\015\012

    Contact your local Department of Motor Vehicles or auto-repair shop for smog check requirements in your state.

  • \015\012
  • 2 \015\012\015\012\015\012

    If your state requires certification by a mechanic, take your car to an approved shop. You can't do a smog test yourself.

  • \015\012
  • 3 \015\012\015\012\015\012

    If your car passes, be sure to get a copy of your car's emissions test results signed by your mechanic. Take this with you to the DMV, or mail it as required in your state.

  • \015\012
  • 4 \015\012\015\012\015\012

    If your car fails, your mechanic must diagnose what repairs will be necessary to get your car into test-passable condition. Make sure to get a copy of your mechanic's assessment.

  • \015\012
  • 5 \015\012\015\012\015\012

    Take that assessment to the DMV. If you have failed, the DMV will issue you a temporary registration and assign you a date by which the car must be repaired and pass the test.


  • I hope this helps, I don't live in Ca but was trying to help pass on the info.
    You have to take it to a certified inspection station to have the smog test done and a new sticker issued. I cannot condone finding a "friend" to pass it for you or anything like that because the whole system is so computerized that they will catch you and the person who "passed" your car.
    \015\012As long as you have all original factory equipment installed (no "racing" carbs, the smog pump is still in place, the cat is still on the exhaust, etc...) you will be OK. If your carb needs a "tweak" to pass the test (usually to bring down CO emissions), most shops will do it on the spot for 20 bucks or so since your car is already on the analyzer, and it is "win-win" for everybody - your car is good to go, the mechanic made an extra buck, and the state gets its fee.
    \015\012The reason that your question has been hanging "out there" for six days without a single reply is because the way your question is posted makes it sound like you want an illegal sticker, and that is not what FixYa is about. We will help you in any way we can to get your car to pass the smog check, but we will not help anybody break the law.
