What is a STAR Smog Check? How do I find a STAR station?

What is the difference between a regular smog station and a STAR smog station?

If the DMV mailed you a renewal notice for your vehicle asking for a smog inspection at a STAR station, there is no need to worry. All this means is that the DMV has chosen your vehicle to be inspected at a smog station which is monitored closely by the State of California and must conform to high standards established by the Bureau of Automotive Repair. Don't worry, Hollywood Star Smog Check is a STAR Certified Smog Check Station.

Some STAR Smog Check Stations are only authorized to perform smog inspections. These stations are known as STAR Test Only stations. Other STAR certified smog centers can perform smog inspections as well as smog check repairs. These smog stations are known as STAR Test & Repair Stations.

Both of these STAR Smog Check stations are allowed to perform regular and STAR smog check inspections.

  • STAR Test Only Centers are only authorized to perform smog inspections and are not allowed to perform smog check repairs.
  •  

  • STAR Test & Repair Stations are authorized to perform STAR Smog inspections, as well as repair and certify all vehicles.  Star Test & Repair Stations also participate in the Consumer Assistance Program.

If the DMV is asking for "Smog Certificate Required at a STAR station", you can visit our facility for an inspection.  We are an Official STAR Certified Smog Check Station.

STAR Certified smog check station duties and responsibilities.

STAR Test Only Station - Star test only stations are authorized by the State of California to inspect both STAR directed and non-directed vehicles. They are not allowed to perform any smog repairs. The purpose of a test only station is to perform an unbiased and accurate smog inspection.  Since a Star test only station is not allowed to perform any repairs, there is no conflict of interest . Star test only stations can perform all smog check inspections required by the DMV.

STAR Test & Repair (CAP) - STAR Test & Repair stations are authorized by the Bureau of Automotive Repair to perform STAR smog check inspections, as well as repair vehicles which have failed the inspection. A STAR Test & Repair station is the only type of smog check center which can inspect, repair and certify any and all vehicles. These stations participate in the State's Consumer Assistance Program and are inspected by the State of California monthly.

STAR Test & Repair stations may also perform smog repairs on vehicles participating in the Consumer Assistance Program.
