What Type of Smog Check Will My Oldsmobile Aloura need When Moving to California?

I'm sure you get this all the time. I just had a car shipped to me to California. It is a 2004 Oldsmobile Aloura. I'm sure I need a smog check before getting it registered. I just want to make sure I do the right one. So my question is, What is the difference between a STAR smog and a regular one and which one do I need to get?


For the purposes of registering your 2004 Oldsmobile Aloura in California for the first time any type of smog station will do, STAR smog station or regular. You may even obtain a smog test at a Test & Repair smog facility or Test Only center.
