If a vehicle needs Smog Check repairs to meet California emissions standards, the state of California Consumer Assistance Program provides the following options:
Qualified motorists can receive up to $500 in emissions-related repairs through CAP's Repair Assistance Program. Eligible consumers must take their vehicles to Gold Shield repair stations which are authorized to perform repair assistance services. Motorists may qualify for Repair Assistance in one of two ways:
Income Eligible Motorists whose household incomes are at or below 185% of the federal poverty guidelines qualify for repair assistance. For example, a family of four whose income does not exceed $2,983 per month, or $35,798 per year, would qualify for up to $500 in repair assistance. Qualified consumers must pay the first $20 towards diagnosis and/or emissions-related repairs.
Test-Only Eligible We are now able to perform inspections on Test-Only directed vehicles. If your vehicle's DMV registration renewal notice requires a Test-Only inspection, your vehicle may qualify for up to $500 in repair assistance. Qualified consumers may contact us for repairs after they have been approved.
The Vehicle Retirement Program is available to motorists who want to voluntarily retire their vehicle rather than repair it. Eligible consumers can receive $1,000 in exchange for their vehicle. Approved vehicles must be driven to one of the state's authorized dismantlers where they are crushed.
You must first submit an application and have it approved, making you and your car eligible for the program. You will then receive a list of participating stations or dismantlers where you can take your car to have it repaired or retired.
