We test all vehicles including star directed, test only, and all-wheel drive vehicles, as well as diesels, heavy duty trucks, and RV's.

This is the best place in town to have your vehicle slogged they go way beyond what they should to make sure that your visit is a positive experience I wouldn't take my vehicles anywhere else nobody going to rip you off or give you bad advice I don't know what the others charge but if I'm paying a little more it's worth every penny.
Thanks to the staff at Lightning Smog your the best

I don't know if they are the cheapest, but I do know that they are awesome! I purchased a new used car out of state, brought to Lightning Smog had had everything done there! NO DMV!!!!!!!!! Got my new plates, transferred the title, and got the smog! So Simple!
