This includes electric vehicles, natural gas powered vehicles, motorcycles, trailers, and gas powered vehicles 1975 and older.


In order to renew your vehicle registration, your vehicle will need to pass the Smog inspection. Residents must take their vehicles to approved DMV testing locations throughout Marin County. Inspectors will check for blue or black smoke coming out of the tailpipe of your vehicle. If there is no blue or black smoke, the vehicle will pass.
