Is there a cut off when I no longer have to smog my car?

    In California, the first four years in the life a NEW car are smog test free. There used to be limits to how much you could be forced to spend to bring a car up to smog check speed, but that is no longer the case. There are smog exemptions for:
    * Hybrid
    * 1975 year model or older
    * Diesel powered
    * Electric
    * Natural gas powered and has a Gross Vehicle Weight rating of 14,001 lbs. or more.
    * Motorcycle
    * Trailer

    There have been attempts to remove the “Classic car exemption” but for now it is still on the official books.
