Smog Check

Located in San Luis Obispo and Santa Maria, CA


At Rizzoli’s Automotive, our talented mechanics are happy to take care of all of your CA Smog Check, Smog Test and Smog Repair needs in San Luis Obispo and Santa Maria.

Types of Smog Checks:

Basic Smog

For vehicles 2000 and newer that are also registered in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties, our Basic Smog Check is fine. Because we enjoy favorable air quality, this is a limited version of the smog test required in other areas of California. Rizzoli’s Automotive offers this smog at both the San Luis Obispo and Santa Maria locations.

Diesel Smog

The Diesel Smog Check is required for diesel vehicles and trucks from 2000 and newer.

If your registration renewal form says “Take your vehicle to a: Gold Shield, Test Only or Star Station”, Rizzoli’s Automotive cannot perform your smog. If you are unsure if your vehicle requires a Test Only or Star Station, feel free to give us a call with you License Plate Number and we can look up your specific vehicles requirements.

For your convenience, we work on an appointment basis. Same day smog appointments are often available, but fill up quickly – call for daily availability. Of course, our Courtesy Shuttle is always available so you don’t have to wait. If your vehicle is 2000 model year or newer, our Santa Maria and San Luis Obispo locations can perform your smog inspection.
