Buying a 2001 Dodge Ram from Out of State How To Be Sure It Will Pass CA Smog?

I'm considering buying a truck (2001 Dodge Ram) from a seller who moved here from Georgia recently. He hasn't yet registered it or smogged it in California. If I buy it, I understand that it will need to pass the CA smog check in order to register it. It will probably pass, but I don't have any guarantee, so I want to ask the seller to get it tested first. Can the seller get it smogged without having to register it in California first? What are my other options?


Answer:  

The seller can get a smog check in California without having registered this 2001 Dodge Ram in one of two ways. They can either ask for a smog check pre-test from any local smog check station, or they can get an actual smog test having explained to the smog technician that the smog test is for an out-of-state vehicle and for the purpose of title transfer.
