We are State of California approved, smog check test station. We also do complete auto repair. We are located for your convenience across the street from the Department of Motor Vehicles, on Main St in Visalia, CA!.
The Smog Check Program is an important part of the State's efforts to improve the air we breathe. Smog Check inspections are designed to identify vehicles with excess emissions so they can be properly repaired. The Program has greatly reduced air pollution created by millions of cars in California.
Some vehicles require a Smog Check at a STAR station. STAR stations must meet specified performance standards established by BAR. Some STAR stations are licensed to perform only tests, while others are licensed to perform both tests and repairs. The station is required to post a sign on the services it is licensed to perform. YES WE ARE STAR CERTIFIED!
If the “Check Engine” light comes on, get your vehicle repaired as soon as possible – do not wait for the vehicle’s next scheduled Smog Check. A blinking or flashing light indicates a malfunction that should be addressed immediately to avoid serious damage to the vehicle. Check your owner’s manual for repairs that may be covered under your vehicle manufacturer’s emissions warranty.
While performing a smog check, our certified technician will connect measuring equipment to your vehicle. This equipment is connected to computers at the Bureau of Automotive Repair.
Measurements taken during the smog check are recorded and available immediately to BAR. Certifications are immediately transmitted to the DMV. Our staff at Main Street Smog will tell you the results of the test. We will give you a receipt and a copy of the test results, known as a Vehicle Inspection Report (VIR).
Main Street Smog understands that routine automotive maintenance prolongs the life of your vehicle. Our team encourages people to service their vehicles regularly. It improves the overall performance and ensures a better driving experience..
