Emissions inspection is carried out in a bid to curb air pollution resulting from toxic chemicals that are harmful to the body and ozone layer. These toxic chemicals also harm the environment by causing the formation of acid rain which is unsafe for consumption as well as on vegetation.
Apart from emissions inspection being a noble practice, itis also a requirement by policy in most states. In the state of California, allvehicles except motorcycles are required to undergo an emissions inspection.
Whether you are a Californian resident looking to registeryour car or looking to renew car registration, an out-of-state resident relocatingto California with your vehicle, or simply want to sell your vehicle (4 yearsand older) in California, an emissions test is necessary.
