Schedule an Appointment
We pride ourselves in being the ONLY smog inspection and vehicle registration service center open 7 days a week! While our wait times are usually minimal, we do encourage interested patrons in the Santee area to schedule an appointment with us in order to avoid any wait. If you are unable to schedule an appointment we recommend coming by during the early morning or afternoon hours, or during the weekends. We look forward to fulfilling all of your smog inspection and auto registration needs! You can visit our DMV Fee Calculator pages to determine your individual fees before arriving.
We are a California STAR Smog Certified Test & Repair Station. We are licensed by the California Bureau of Automotive Repairs to provide certified smog checks to meet California’s DMV registration requirements. We are also certified to make repairs if your vehicle did not pass the emission standards.
Keep in mind, you might be required to use a STAR Smog Check Station. Even though there are cases that your vehicle can be tested at any smog check facility, in other cases it will have to be tested at a STAR Certified auto repair shop such as AAA Smog Test Santee.
In California and especially in San Diego County, your vehicle is subject to a smog inspection. In many cases, the inspection is up to the DMV and inspections might have to be performed every two years for vehicles over a certain age, make or model. You will receive the required information for your smog inspection when you receive your yearly registration paperwork.
If you live in California or are planning on moving here, you will need a smog test performed on your vehicle and possibly any needed repairs. Give us a call, we know California’s standards and you can count on AAA Smog Center Santee to make sure your vehicle will pass all needed tests.
