THOUSAND OAKS SMOG CHECK STATION

Your Preferred ASE Certified Auto Repair and Smog Check Station in Thousand Oaks

Smog Check inspections monitor vehicle emissions and determine whether they are in excess of an acceptable environmental safety standard. Smog Check programs are part of a commitment towards maintaining and improving air quality. As a certified Smog Test and Repair center, Beattie automotive is authorized to perform Smog Checks that meet the standards required for vehicle registration.

"SMOG CHECK REQUIRED"

These could sometimes be the most dreaded part of that DMV registration notice. We tend to panic a little because not only do we have to pay to register our car but we also have to check and see if it passes the smog check standards in California. Fortunately our ASE Master certified technician can get your car up to par by fixing up whatever failures come up on the state's diagnostic system.

PLAN EARLY

We sometimes get busy and put off the required smog check. At Beattie Automotive, we encourage you to call us and schedule that smog check early in order to avoid late fees at the DMV and/or traffic tickets for driving with an expired registration. We are also open Saturdays by appointment only, keep us in mind!

THOUSAND OAKS BRAKE AND LAMP INSPECTION STATION

WHY DO I NEED A BRAKE AND LAMP INSPECTION?

The purpose of a brake and lamp inspection is to make sure that a vehicle being issued a California DMV salvage title is in road-worthy and safe driving condition before the title is rebranded as a salvaged vehicle. 

 

The definition of a salvaged vehicle is any vehicle that an insurance company has declared a total loss in the past. The purpose of the "Salvaged Title" is to warn prospective buyers that at one time in the past an insurance company has declared the vehicle a total loss.

 

Most insurance companies WILL insure salvaged vehicles contrary to popular belief. Most insurance companies will provide comprehensive and collision coverage for salvaged vehicles as well.When you "retain" a salvaged vehicle, either because of an accident or theft of the vehicle, the California DMV requires the printing of a new salvaged title even if the owner remains the same. 

 

The CA DMV requires that a State Licensed Brake and Lamp Inspection service conduct a complete examination of these critical items on a vehicle the will help ensure the safety of the vehicle while it is being driven on the roads. 

 

The Brake and Lamp Inspection Location Service will present a state certificate documenting that the vehicle has passed the safety inspection which will then be  presented to the DMV when the application for salvaged title is requested.
