inspection, you know that thing you have to get done once a year in order to be able to drive your car... they don't have this in cali?
In California, smog inspections are generally required during a vehicle's initial registration and once, every two years, thereafter. This inspection cycle will continue for as long as the vehicle is registered in this State. Smog Inspections are also required anytime a vehicle is sold or bought in California. During a title transfer the Department of Motor Vehicles will not allow a vehicle to be registered unless it is presented with a valid smog certificate.
Under current California law, 1975 and subsequent model year vehicles will be exempt from Smog Check when they turn 30 years old. A 1976 model year vehicle will be exempt in 2005, a 1977 in 2006, etc.
Currently exempt from the State of California Smog Check program are:
** Two-cylinder or less
** Two-stroke (two-cycle) engines(excluding rotary engine)
** Engines under 819cc
** 1975 model-year vehicles and older
** 4 model years old and newer (except for initial registration in California or change of ownership)
