Smog Check

Well I've owned my car long enough that I now need to get a smog check. After reading through the letter that the DMV sends you I found that they have an online database that you can search for finding a "Test Only" smog place. Which usually means faster test time (20 minutes), and less money ($45.00). 🙂
