To find a state car inspection location in California, search for approved locations on the DMV website. Go to DMV.org, select the State of California and then click on the "Registration and Titling" tab. Once you are in the Registration and Titling tab, select "Smog Check."
Within the Smog Check section, find the search bar at the bottom of the pages. Search by zip code or city or region to find car inspection locations that are in close geographical proximity to them. Smog checks are required in most, but not all counties in California.
State inspection sites bear a emblem marking them as a designated business for state reviews.
