General Smog Check

How Often Does a 2016 Vehicle Need a Smog Check?

I have owned my 2016 Impreza Sport for 3 years and have never been required to show a smog check for registration. Is there any reason why? How often should my Impreza need a smog test?


As of 2019 January, only vehicles older that eight years will require a biennial smog check inspection. Your gasoline-powered vehicle should require a smog check in 2024. The DMV will instruct you to obtain an emissions inspection in order to renew its registration. Your registration renewal notice will indicate the requirement.
