All Smog Express Tests All Types of Vehicles Including Hybrids

Not all shops have the equipment to test all vehicles.  This is especially true if you have a hybrid.  I bet you were surprised if you got a smog check notice and you owned a Prius.  Yes, because your vehicles is a hybrid, it has a combustion engine it needs  a smog check.  Because of the way that hybrid vehicles work, the BAR did not have equipment in place until 2015 that could test hybrids.  One reason for this is that part of the smog check is an idle test and hybrids don't idle.  All Smog Express can test your hybrid so bring it on down.
