Smog Check and Testing Services
 

 


OFFICIAL SMOG CHECK: 
 

We provide the official SMOG CHECK for all vehicles including trucks, SUVs and Gross Polluters using our cutting edge BAR-97 Emission Inspection System (EIS) required by the State of California. The inspection includes a visual, functional and tail-pipe emissions test. Certain vehicles emissions testing require the use of a dynometer for Acceleration Simulation Mode (ASM), or loaded-mode test. The ASM simulates actual driving conditions and allows for more precise testing for CO, HC and NOx - the three most harmful pollutants emitted by motor vehicles.

Once the SMOG CHECK is completed we will provide you a Vehicle Inspection Report (VIR) which is also transmitted to the DMV for your vehicle records. If you vehicle passes, our system will automatically transmit your Smog Certificate to the DMV electronically - which saves you time. 

PRE-TEST: 
A "PRE-TEST" allows us to perform the exact same test without sending the information to the DMV, enabling you to make the necessary repairs or adjustments to the vehicle before performing a SMOG CHECK. The "PRE-TEST" is a useful diagnostic procedure for a vehicle with existing problems that may impact the vehicle's emissions system. PRE-TEST : If your vehicle fails the initial SMOG CHECK at our location we offer a "PRE-TEST" at a discounted price. The "PRE-TEST" is the exact same test as a official SMOG CHECK.

INSPECTION:

 

We always make sure vehicle is in the right condition for smog inspection. We make sure the catalytic converter is hot (it should be above the 600 F), because  if it’s not many vehicles fail . Most of the German cars fail smog inspection due to improper testing (Mercedes , BMW, etc). We take the time to assure the catalytic converter is at the proper operating temperature to prevent unnecessary and costly failures. Saving the customer time and money.

Don't need repairs? Just need a smog certificate? Then Test Only Smog is just what you need!

TEST ONLY CENTER VERSUS TEST AND REPAIR STATION

Get your smog check at a Test Only Center whether you are told to or not by the State of California.

 

Why? 

 

There is no incentive for your vehicle to fail since no repairs can be sold.

 

A Test and Repair Center can sell you repairs if your vehicle fails the smog test. Test Only Center can smog check just about any vehicle. Since Test and Repair Centers profit by selling diagnostics and repairs, usually the charge for the smog check is less to attract more business. There are several reasons the State created Test Only Centers and one is to try and eliminate Fraud in the smog check industry. It is also illegal for an owner of a Test Only Center to have ownership of a Test and Repair Center within 50 miles of any Test Only Center it may own.

WE ARE "STAR CERTIFIED" 

WE DO ANY TYPE OF SMOG INSPECTION !
 

Did you receive your renewal notice and discover that it's asking for a "smog inspection at a Star Certfied station" instead of a regular smog check? There is no need to worry! This just means that the state has chosen your car to be inspected at a special smog station. A Star Certified station has met higher performance standards, as set by the BAR and a Test Only Center, is one where vehicles are only tested, no repairs or adjustments are allowed. 

So if it reads, "Smog Certification Required," or "Smog Certification Required at a Star Certified station"

WALNUT CREEK'S BEST TEST ONLY SMOG INSPECTION CENTER is the right place for you! 

It typically only takes 15 minutes, we can smog while you wait!
Bring your car in today for a smog inspection or even if you don’t need a Start Certified or test only and you need a regular smog check, or gross polluter we test them too!
