Smog checks were introduced in the 1970s as part of the Clean Air Act. Biennial smog checks are mandatory in California due to the high number of registered vehicles. Regular emissions testing reduces excessive smog, keeps pollutants out of the air, and contributes to a healthier state.
During a smog check, our team will test your vehicle’s exhaust system to ensure it isn't 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 this amount to California’s standards.
Smog checks are required for many CA vehicles, including:
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. In the event your exhaust system needs work, we are certified to perform the repairs.
Franklin's Service is a STAR certified testing facility. This means we meet the high standards put forth by the Bureau of Automotive Repairs. It also means we can test emissions and repair exhausts for vehicles that must test a STAR station, as determined by the DMV and indicated on your smog check notice. We take our reputation seriously and commit ourselves to providing exemplary performance to each and every customer we serve. We've earned our position as a professional STAR smog check station for taking our work seriously and committing ourselves to exemplary exhaust service for each and every customer we see.
Smog checks improve air quality in California significantly. Be sure to get your biennial smog check after you receive your notice. At Franklin's Service, we’re happy to check your smog levels and let you know where your vehicle stands. Call or visit us today!
