Counties with lower levels of Smog pollution are designated as "Change of Ownership" areas. In Change of Ownership areas of the state, Smog checks are only required when a vehicle is bought or sold, and/or when a used vehicle is imported into the State of California.
New vehicles imported into California by the vehicle manufacturer do not require Smog checks. These vehicles are California Certified during production.
