1. Registration or Renewal: Most vehicles are required to be smog checked every two years to renew your registration with D.M.V.
There are certain exceptions, gasoline vehicles newer than 6 years old, hybrids, motorcycles, gasoline vehicles 1975 or older, and diesel vehicles 1997 and older are exempt from this requirement.
2. Change of Ownership: It is the seller’s responsibility to have the vehicle inspected within 90 days of the transaction and most vehicles are required to be inspected with a change of ownership. There are exceptions for example, transfer of title between certain family members does not require a smog check.
3. Bringing in a car from out of state: Most cars coming from out of state seeking registration in California need to be smogged. Hybrids, motorcycles, gasoline vehicles 1975 or older, and diesel vehicles 1997 and older are exempt from this requirement.
