Hey guys Nick here from Budget Smog Test & Repair Sylmar to tell you about what is the difference between a star smog check and a non-star smog check. There's really not much of a difference guys grab your tools let's get ready let's hit it the beer bottle. Moderate pair of the state of California introduced a B 2289 or assembly bill 22 89 basically saying that now the smog check process remains the same however technicians and stations are going to be graded depending on how well they're performing smog check inspections. If you need to go to a smog check station and your DMV renewal slip says you got to go to a star station, what does that mean that it really means is just saying that your vehicle has a higher likelihood of failing or during test data throughout the state of California. The vehicle that you own has a higher likelihood of failing based on all the other technicians that are smog in that same year make and model vehicle it's not a bad thing. So if you are sent to a star station don't sweat it, really it's the same smog check process the test we do is the same the results we get are the same. The only thing that changes is if the station is allowed to certify it because their star approved or not star approved. When you come to a star station the only major difference is we're gonna have a star certified sign or not once the station reaches a certain amount of test data they can then apply to the state of California first star certification if they're approved for a star certification. Now they can start inspecting and certifying those star certified vehicles if your vehicle has to go to a star station.
