The good news: Successful completion of this 16 hour course (including completing all required lab assignments and passing the written final exam) continues to take the place of the previously required state smog exam (only for those who are renewing a current license). As soon as you finish this course, send your renewal application to the BAR and you are done (assuming your ASE or alternative certificates are not expired).

You must bring a picture ID and Smog License # (if you have a license) to class.
