Getting a routine smog inspection every few years is necessary for registering your car in Riverside County.

Our STAR-certified station can get you in and out quickly, no appointment required!
California requires all vehicles with a model year of 2000 or newer to receive a periodic smog inspection using the OBDII test. Cars with a model year between 1976 and 1999 still may need consistent checks, but the type of check is dependent on the area, city, or county in which you live.
The DMV requires any vehicles being registered in California for the first time to undergo an emissions check. Getting quick and easy service is important in these cases, as you want to get your car on the road as quickly as possible.
Menifee, along with most of the surrounding areas, are designated as Enhanced Areas by the state. These areas are defined as those that don’t meet state or federal air quality standards and are widely considered to be among California’s most polluted areas. What this means for you is that areas like Menifee require your vehicle to undergo a biennial inspection that includes an acceleration simulation test. This test determines your vehicle’s nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions.
