Why does my vehicle have to be inspected at a Test-Only Station?

"In order to comply with the mandates of the federal Clean Air Act, the Department of Consumer Affairs/Bureau of Automotive Repair (DCA/BAR) began directing fifteen percent (15%) of all vehicles in Enhanced Areas to Test Only Stations in 1998. However, DCA/BAR has gradually increased the number of vehicles directed to Test-Only stations to continually improve program effectiveness and comply with the emission reduction objectives set forth in the State Implementation Plan, which is a master plan for complying with federal air quality requirements." 

Motorist Notification. The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) notifies owners of vehicles which have been selected to have their initial Smog Check inspections performed at Test-Only Stations. The Registration Renewal Notice sent to these vehicle owners will say "Smog Certification Required at Test-Only Facility." If this statement is on your Renewal Notice and you take the vehicle to a test-and-repair station, the technician at the station will be unable to certify your vehicle. These vehicles must be inspected at a Test-Only Station.  source: California Bureau of Automotive Repair
