What is a Smog Test Only Center?
You received your renewal notice and discovered it's asking for a smog inspection at a Smog Test Only Center. No need to panic. All this means is that the DMV has chosen your car to be inspected at a special Test Only smog station. A Smog Test Only center, as the name suggests, can only smog test vehicles and is not allowed to perform automotive repairs. A test only smog check center has an obligation to insure a non-biased smog test inspection. They can not perform repairs.
