What Exactly is a Smog Check? See for yourself how a car is smog tested.

A smog check is a test required by the state which measures the amount of airborne pollution emitted from the vehicle being teseted. Many states including California require vehicle owners to have an smog check run on their vehicles in certain cases. What type of emissions test and how often you need to have your vehicle smog checked depends mainly on where you live, the type of vehicle you have and the age of the vehicle. You can find out more in our smog check information area. A smog check consists of a visual inspection, a functional test, a tailpipe test and the certificate. Depending on your vehicle you may not need a tail pipe test. If you have an older vehicle you may need an EVAP test.

Once the test is complete a certificate will be issued and transmitted to the DMV. The transmission currently takes place nightly and so your results may not be available until the following morning.
