Welcome to the STAR Web page. Beginning January 2013, all stations that wish to
certify directed and gross-polluting vehicles must meet specific performance standards
under the proposed STAR Program. The new program is being developed in response
to AB 2289 (Eng, Chapter 258, Statutes of 2010).
All licensed Smog Check stations and inspectors will have the ability to check their
performance in meeting the new standards on this STAR Web page. The data shown on
this site is intended to assist licensed Smog Check stations and inspectors in improving
their performance prior to the start of the STAR Program in January 2013.
Feel free to explore and become familiar with this new page. By clicking on the hyperlink
that points to the Report Card Terms, you can learn more about the STAR Program. For additional information
regarding the STAR Program performance measures, eligibility requirements, and definitions
see the Regulations
that were adopted with Smog Check industry input to establish the program. If, after
reviewing this page, you still have questions about the STAR Program, see the
STAR Program General Information.
We welcome your input on the STAR Web page. For suggestions on ways to improve its
usefulness for Smog Check stations and inspectors, please send us an email at BAR.IndustryHelpDesk@dca.ca.gov.
As a result of your input, the STAR page may change. Thank you for taking the time
