Smog Check & Vehicle Registration FAQ
Is Smogs N Tags a branch from the California DMV?
No, Smogs N Tags is licensed by the California DMV to provide Vehicle Registration Services to the public, but we are not a branch of the Department of Motor Vehicles.
What do I need to renew my registration?
The Renewal Notice received in the mail or a copy of either an old Registration Card or Title and, if required, a copy of the Insurance card and/or Smog Check. Contact us with the plate and VIN number of your vehicle to know exactly what is needed and how much registration fees are due.
What do I need to transfer ownership of a vehicle?
Title signed by the seller or an Application of Duplicate Title form signed by the seller. Also, a Smog Check would be required for any private party sale. You can bring the transfer documents you have available to our office and we will check them for completeness without any obligation.
Does Smogs N Tags charge a service fee?
Yes, Smogs N Tags charges a Processing fee for most of the transactions available. Pricing is among the most competitive in the industry and we believe the value received from the time and frustration you would save is higher compared to going to a DMV.
Will I get my Registration/Sticker/Plate instantly in your office?
Yes. There are a few exceptions, such as Salvage Retentions or Lien Sales. If for any reason instant registration is not available for your transaction, we would have it ready for pick up within 24 to 48 hrs.
What is the average wait time?
While the total time that you would be in our office varies per transaction type, it usually averages from 5 to 15 minutes.
Do I have to make an appointment?
No, you can come to see us anytime during our business hours and we will be happy to help you. Open 7 Days with extended hours available.
What methods of payment do you accept?
Cash, Debit, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express

We will be happy to help you and answer any questions you may have. Contact us at 619-328-1111.
