$40 with online coupon, in and out excellent service with my smog check certificate all taken care of! Also, embarassingly forgot my wallet and I offered my phone as hostage but they were kind enough to allow me to leave with my car to go get it. Yay.

I rolled into Smog & Registration today (Saturday) at 1:30PM with a car I needed to smog, register, and title transfer.  Having never done these things outside of an actual DMV office, I fully expected to spend at least an hour or two dealing with the paperwork and whatnot. I left before 2:00PM with my interim title and reg sticker in hand. I'm sorry I didn't catch the name of the proprietor, but he was incredibly helpful and friendly with all the paperwork and explaining the fees.  Even included the $5 discount for the coupon from his website I couldn't print because I was too cheap to refill my inkjet printer. So if you dread going to the DMV and standing in lines, give this place a shot and support local small business.

I've been coming here since my first smog test was required about 6 years ago.  Steve, the owner is awesome.  It's never taken me more than 40 min to get in and out, even during busy times.  He always honors his $5.00 off coupon from their website and charges a good rate.  I tell all my friends to go here, and they listen to me because I'm a car guy.  The one person who didn't listen to me went to another place at PCH near Palos Verdes, sat there for 2.5hrs, and got charged $40 more than what I pay.  My typical price has been around $50 which is among the lowest around.  Keep in mind tho your rate will vary by your car, service etc.  He offers full service registration and stickers etc for extra but I've never taken advantage of it. One more note, this shop DOES HAVE the new "STAR Registration" deal.  I panicked when I didn't see it on the website but I guess they haven't added that to the website yet. Good luck and happy smog testing!

Found this place and so I packed my backpack with a book or so to help me kill time as I waited for the smog to be done. To my surprise though this place isn't like most other places that make you wait half a day to do a quick smog which is why I brought all my things to help me pass the time. He not only did the smog but renewed my registration all in under 30 minutes but it felt more like I was in and out sooner than that. Will definitely be coming back!

Fast service, professional and I passed.  Tip go on a Wednesday.  I was there for 25 mins.

— Yelp User Review

Been coming here for the last 8 years and every time I get the same consistent service. Steve was able to squeeze me in towards the end of the day to get my smog done and I was basically in and out with in 20 minutes. You just can't beat the service here.

Great FAST service.

Completely overwhelmed single mom of twin toddlers with a laundry list of things to do with my car. I actually had an appointment with the garage next door, they were running behind and suggested I try here. From the other yelper's description, I believe the gent who helped me was Steve, he's the head honcho over there anyway..He was a lifesaver! It is so stressful taking your car in when you have to taxi home with your kiddos (which is what I originally expected). He completed my Smog, oil change and fuse inspection in just over half an hour. I was able to wait in the office area which had a vending machine, children's books, a rest room and a TV! Jackpot!! Not to mention, my kids really took to him which says a lot about his personality. He helped me get the kiddos in and out of the car and took time to pay attention to them! I mean what mechanic makes sure your kids are safely buckled in before you drive off?  I'd give 6 stars if I could. Price was fair too. I joked about asking him to babysit when he finished work...still have my fingers crossed he he!

Very nice man performed my smog test. I went on a Friday morning and was the only person. It went very quick and I used the $10 yelp coupon. I'd definitely come back.  P.s. I found this place after a very bad experience with the new owner of Aloha Smog.

— Yelp User Review

A very good experience. Don't be turned off by the busy parking situation. A small area for so much business. The smog shop shares parking space with other businesses an it is crowded. But, park wherever you can, go to office and they'll take care of the rest. Fast, efficient. I was in and out in less than 15 minutes. Steve was very attentive.

— Yelp User Review

Went there. Called a few places including gas stations. But this place has the better price. Went there, waited 15mins and I am out. Easy in and easy out. Like it. Will recommend to others.

Came here around noon for a quick smog check and was greeted immediately by Steve. He was super helpful, giving me some good advice about the car registration and needs for my appt later today at the DMV. The check itself only took 10-15 minutes... Sooo easy. Thanks Steve!

— Yelp User Review

I see why everyone loves this place. Great service and customer experience. Thank you Steve

— Yelp User Review

Add me to the list of satisfied customers. Friendly, fast, and fairly priced. I never thought getting a smog check could be a pleasant experience.

— Yelp User Review

Quick. Same price for every car. No luxury or suv BS charges. No hidden fees. During my most recent smog, the owner fixed a non-communication with the OBC by replacing a blown fuse, then continued with the test. Other places would have failed me due to noncommunication and sent me in my way. He knew exactly how to fix the issue and get me through the test! Amazing service!

— Yelp User Review

Been going to these guys for almost 10 years for both our cars. We've moved 20 minutes away, but not going anywhere else but these guys for a smog. STAR certified I'm glad to say. Excellent service and honest owner. Gave me free advice several times on how to fix some mechanical issues without spending much money. He could have easily charged me for the repair himself. Glad they've grown their business since I first visited.

These guys did a great job. I stopped by for a smog check along with a VIN inspection and I was in/out within 20 minutes.  Great service!

— Yelp User Review

I think I just found a new Smog Check spot! A nice Korean man helped me (think his name was Steve) and I was in and out of this place in 15 mins flat! They were friendly and helpful and started working on my car right away. They were able to send my smog certification to the DMV electronically and provided me a copy for my records. The price was very affordable, almost 20 bucks cheaper than the place I used to go to and they had a Yelp coupon for $10 off! The only negative I noted about this place was the parking lot. There are several businesses/car shops in this center, leaving no vacant parking spaces at all. But, it ended up being fine. I double parked and went into the shop. Steve took my car in and started working on it almost immediately.  I definitely recommend this place!

— Yelp User Review

Wow these guys are amazing fastest smog ever brought my girlfriends car here was in and out less than 15 mins good price and fast very helpful all smog places should take lessons from these guys they are the best

— Yelp User Review

This place services fast! I came in around 11am and was out the door in like 15 mins. Price was like $40 (after the check-in yelp discount). I like that this place is quick, has a few chairs for people to sit and wait, and up front about pricing and expectations. The entrance is on Hawthorne Blvd, but yelp directions takes you some place else. I don't know because I didn't follow it. I took at look at google street view first prior to coming here. Parking lot is tiny, but at least they have a few desginated spots. They take credit cards and cash =)

— Yelp User Review

Similar experience as everyone else. Steve was extremely courteous and professional.  He started on the smog inspection right away. Done in 15 minutes.  $39.99 with Yelp check-in discount.   A little hard to find. It's off of Hawthorne -- my GPS led me to the back of the building,  where there is no entrance. They also do registration and other DMV services for a fee,  but saves you a trip to the DMV! #timeismoney

Needed to get an oil change and a smog test on an older car. They were awesome from the time of my phone call to when I arrived. Took care of every thing, answered all of my questions, and got me back on the road in about an hour. Definitely would recommend!

— Yelp User Review

The gentleman who performed the smog check on my car was very friendly and showed excellent customer service. He greeted me with a smile and performed the smog check on my vehicle very quickly. He was very efficient, accommodating and checked in to make sure I was comfortable while I waited. If I need smog & registration, I would definitely return here. Great local, small business that I'm happy to support! Thank you Smog & Registration for your services!!

— Yelp User Review

Great price and services from this place. $49.99 for check smog my 97 Nissan Maxima with Yelp checkin promotion. Take 20 mins to get it done. The owner Steven is very nice to explain thing to me with knowledge. Will come back if I need another smog check in 2 years.

— Yelp User Review

The guys there were super friendly and helpful. I was in and out with tags in hand, less then 15 minutes. I highly recommend this place. :)

— Yelp User Review

Awesome place. Quick in and out with my smog check. Got my registration done there at the same time and was able to get to work on time. Would defiantly recommend going here if you need to do the same.

— Yelp User Review

I should have listened to them and paid the extra $30 for them to do the vehicle registration and stickers, but I needed coffee and didn't get that he was pointing it out because I was smogging so close to the due date (1 day... Doh!). I went to the DMV and did the kiosk but am now in a loop with having to resubmit a different form and waiting for my stickers. My dad is super picky about automotive stuff and sent me here. I was in and out in less than 30 minutes and they were super nice. $39.99 after Yelp discount.

— Yelp User Review

I like to think that I don't give out 5 stars easily, unless the establishment truly impresses me, but this place deserves every star I can give. Pretty much everything I read on Yelp was true. The guy that helped me was Steve. This guy knew what he was talking about and was very relating! I had a great experience. In and out in like 30mins or so. Smog test, VIN verification, and registration!  You should go to this place before the DMV, they probably know tips and tricks to help you get through any car processes you might encounter! Parking sucks but when I got there he said I could just pull into one of the bays and I was basically serviced right then.  Make sure to mention Yelp or the online coupon!  I wish I could give more stars because I feel like this place does right and actually tries to help the customer. I went in needing help and I left completely satisfied. I even remember thinking to myself - 'wow, they really did everything they could to ensure I had a good experience.

— Yelp User Review

The lovely gentleman that runs  this business treats customers very well. They don't make you wait and keep you abreast of the progress. Very pleasant to deal with. I will be having my check engine light diagnosed and they will do the work in order for my car to pass the smog test.

— Google User Review

There were some complications with my registration (because of the government/dmv) and Steve and his crew made sure I was taken care of.  This is really a great place. I recommend them to my buddies that need car stuff and I'm glad they have a great rating.

The greatest place to get Smog and registration!!!! Open on the Saturday too!!! A one stop shop!!!! What more can you ask for!!!!!!!

— Yelp User Review

Had a smog check done recently and needed to finish my registration forms. I was in and out in under 30 minutes with my papers in order. Steve, the owner, even honored his discount without any mention of it from me.  I would definitely go back and have it done there again. 

— Google User Review

Nothing bad to say. Pleasant staff. Quick service. Also, having the ability to renew registration and receive new tags on the spot is tremendous.

— Yelp User Review

It was quick and easy...I would definitely recommend getting your smog check here!  And don't forget your $10 off coupon.

— Yelp User Review

The best place you would go better than DMV you can literally do everything over here from smog mechanical problem to renewal registration transfer  Great service come see Steve he's the best

— Yelp User Review

I brought my car in because I was leaking coolant. They did a full inspection on the car and told me I was leaking from my water pump and even notified me about an oil leak and told me to kee an eye on it. They were very helpful in explaining what repairs I needed and got the job done in a timely manner. The staff was very polite and even gave me an estimate on the other repairs I needed. I recommend coming here for any repairs needed! Awesome place with a great staff.

Smog & Registration offers a quick and efficient solution to the car troubles of many. My vehicle was due for a smog check for the first time and I saw them on Yelp. Ever since the beginning, starting from the inquiry to actually waking in, these guys have made it simple for me.  I was quoted a 30 minute wait for my smog check. I was able to get in and out of there in 20. They also took care of my DMV paperwork. There's a $30 fee, but it beats waiting in line at the DMV honestly.  I'll be back here if I ever need to be. They're very helpful and work super fast. Make sure to use the Yelp coupon if you're getting a smog check!

— Yelp User Review

It was quick and easy for a little than 15minutes, nicely done for the smog test with certification. CREDIT CARD ACCEPTED with warm and graceful conversation with the owner Steve. Please dont forget to get the 20% off via Yelp apps. They also offer DMV registration for a just $30 and oil change (mobil 1). This is one stop shop. Kudus to the owner and his team.
