star smog station windsor californiaIf you received your DMV renewal notice that it’s asking for a smog inspection at a STAR station, there is no reason to panic. This simply means that the California DMV has chosen your car to be inspected at a smog station which is monitored closely by the BAR (Bureau of Automotive Repairs) and must conform to high standards established by the Bureau of Automotive Repairs.

The State of California uses the following three methodologies to determine whether a vehicle is STAR station designated or not:

  • Gross polluters (vehicles which have failed a previous smog inspection with very high emission readings)
  • High Emitter Profile vehicles. These are vehicle types designated by the BAR as having high chances of failing the smog inspection.
  • A random sample of all vehicles registered in California and being driven on public roadways.
