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?

┬áDo 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.
