OBD only SMOG in NorCal

Anyone know of a shop doing OBD SMOG test in NorCal, preferably around San Jose but I can travel if necessary.

Would rather not do a tail pipe test if you know what I mean.

Thanks,

A.

Time to reinstall your stock dps. I searched far and wide, and ended up just reinstalling my stockers. No way around it until October. Another option is to just drive without your tabs for a few months and hope you don't get pulled over, or the fine is too ridiculous.

Yeah but I don't think the system is in place yet, which may be why there are no known shops doing the OBD II test only.

Shops are not required to immediately switch over to the new process.
