Doesn’t it stink that California forces you to get a smog check just to drive your car? Well it would be worse for the environment if you didn’t, but who cares?!
They are taking our money for this. I think they should offer free smog checks, but that isn’t going to happen anytime soon. You might as well try to save some money with a smog check coupon.
These coupons are usually hard to find on the web but you can find them in ads and on Yelp fairly easily.
You can get $20 off of your smog check at Pasadena Test Only & Smog Check. Mention that you found the deal on Yelp to save on the smog check.
Smog Pros in Hollywood usually has a good coupon. The usual deal is $28.95 for the smog check. Unfortunately they cannot do anything about the state fees which are about $8.25 for the California State Certificate fee and then a $2.80 wiring fee. That will be about $40 for your smog check with the coupon.
Smogtime in Burbank is currently charging a discounted $40 for a smog check. This does not include the state fees though.
