What is a STAR Certified Smog Check Station?
The new STAR Program began January 1, 2013, and replaced the Gold Shield and Test Only program. If your DMV registration renewal notice states your vehicle requires a smog check at a STAR station, you may still take your vehicle to a Gold Shield or Test Only station before the new program begins. If your vehicle registration states your vehicle requires a smog check at a Gold Shield or Test Only station, you must take your vehicle to a STAR station after December 31, 2012.
What is a STAR CERTIFIED Smog Check Center?
The state of California Bureau of Automotive Repairs (BAR) requires vehicles to undergo a regular smog check at a certified repair station. STAR Certified stations, like California Smog Check Centers, meet performance standards established by the BAR.
How do I Know if My Vehicle Needs a Test?
