Do not obtain a smog inspection in another state; it will not be valid here. You need not bring it back to California in order to complete your registration. Simply fill out and sign DMV’s ” Statement of Facts ” form (you need the free Adobe Acrobat reader to download and print this form). The registration tags will be mailed to wherever the car is currently located.
My renewal notice says my car needs a Smog Check. But the car is out of state, and will not be back for many months. It’s too far to bring it back to California for a smog inspection. Can I get the car smog checked in another state and send the results here?
