Due to an increase in Catalytic Converter (CAT) thefts, we have been made aware that there are no replacement CATs available for these vehicles at this time. For this reason, the Referee program has acceptable alternative CATs that can be used.
Now Hiring Referees
The Smog Check Referee Program is recruiting for open Referee positions throughout California. We currently have open positions in the greater Los Angeles area, and Northern California. Smog Referees work with the public, perform inspections and testing of vehicles for smog certification, and help train community college students for careers in the smog check field.
