Chapter 3 Collection and Payment Of Fees and Penalties
3.065 Smog Certification Fee (CVC §11713.1 and CH&SC §44060)
Dealers may charge buyers a fee not to exceed $50 for emission testing plus the actual fee charged for issuance of the smog certification.
Some vehicles cannot be issued certificates by a smog station because the vehicle’s onboard diagnostic (OBD) system data is inappropriate for the vehicle being tested. However, certificates may be issued for those vehicles by a referee.
