During smog checks, state-licensed technicians identify the amount and type of pollutants released by a vehicle as it runs. They test the exhaust pipe and other emissions systems for an average of 15–20 minutes then measure the results against the state's standards. Automobiles that pass the test can then receive their certification—a biennial requirement for many Californians. The center services all types of cars, from compact models to time machines and mobile homes. Click here for FAQs.
This deal does not include California's $8.25 certification fee, and vehicle models made in or prior to 1995 incur an additional $10 charge. Customers who choose the two-vehicle option must bring in both cars on the same day.
Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
