Am I required to get a smog test, or is it optional??

Post by Sherman on Thu Dec 04, 2014 7:47 pm

For my newly Mexican plated car, am I legally required to get a smog test, or is it optional?

What happens if I don't get the smog test? Run the risk of getting stopped, and/or a ticket?

Someone mentioned to me that the only reason to get a smog test is to get a discount offered? True or false?

It is or was required for driving in Guadalajara. I've been told they dropped the program.
When you get your Spring / Fall tuneup... have it done anyways... only costs 200 pesos......

and you get another sticker Beer

It is the law, you need to test annually depending on last digit of license plate

Can you direct me to the website that tells you what month you are required to have the test?

You must have your car smog checked and a new sticker each year on or before the month that corresponds to the last digit of your license plate

Month Ending Plate Digit Month Ending Plate Digit
January 1 July 6
February 2 August 7
March 3 September 8
April 4 October 9

The facility that does authorized emission control tests in Chapala is located on the east side of Zaragoza north of Degollado.

Is there a sign of some sort, an address, or is the place just obvious?

Thanks ....

The facility is located inside a public parking lot with a sign on the exterior. They open at 10:00 A.M.

June and December do not correspond to any plate ending number, remember here it is plate ending number, not renewal month as all renew annually in January with discounts in the first 2 months, less the next 2 and then after nothing and then stiff penalties.
