Smog Check Inspection Procedures: Visible Smoke Test Mobile App

The Smog Check Inspection Procedures: Visible Smoke Test mobile app makes it easy to conduct smog check tests with your smartphone or tablet. The smoke check inspections checklist can be used right at the smog check station during all vehicle inspections.

Smog inspection station inspectors can use the app to ensure that emission levels are at acceptable levels and that the vehicle has passed the smog testing process. Once the smog station has completed smog testing, the results can be signed off on by the inspection station representative and saved for the motor vehicle's record.
