Star Smog Certification Long Beach
Smog check locations are licensed into four different categories
Advanced Computer Automotive is proud to be a part of the STAR Program with the Bureau of Automotive Repair. The STAR program was established on January 1, 2013.
If you receive a vehicle registration notice that indicates that you are required to have your vehicle tested at a STAR station, it means that your car has been chosen for inspection at a smog station that is monitored closely by the Bureau of Automotive Repairs and must conform to the highest of standards.
If you are in need of a Long Beach STAR certified smog check facility for your vehicle, Advanced Computer Automotive has been rated as a STAR certified smog check location.
- STAR Test-Only – A smog test only station is not licensed to repair vehicles unable to pass emissions testing but they are licensed to test all vehicles including directed and gross-polluting vehicles.
- STAR Test-and-Repair – A smog Test and Repair facility can make repairs as well as certify directed and gross-polluting vehicles. They must also provide repair assistance services under the Bureau of Automotive Repair’s Consumer Assistance Program.
- Test-Only (non-STAR certified) – A Test Only facility can only inspect vehicles that are non- directed or non gross-polluting. They also cannot inspect vehicles that are undergoing an ownership change.
- Test-and-Repair (non-STAR certified) – If a facility is certified as Test and Repair, they are able to certify and repair all vehicles other than directed, gross polluting and those vehicles that are going through an ownership change.
