Why does my vehicle have to be inspected at
a Test-Only or Star Certified Station?
STAR Smog Check Program Arriving January 2013
January 1st 2013 the State of California will revolutionize the smog
check industry once again with the implementation of the new STAR
Smog Station program. The STAR program aims to restrict smog check
centers with low smog check performance scores from inspecting
"directed" vehicles. Directed vehicles are those which the state has
recognized as gross polluters and/or vehicles which fall under the
HEP (High Emitter Profile) group, and which currently make-up
approximately 18 percent of vehicles on California roadways.
