“We’ve seen the unfortunate consequences to putting off the submission of important paperwork to California’s Bureau of Automotive Repair,” explained attorney William Ferreira of Automotive Defense Specialists. “A simple thing such as a missing a required deadline can get the BAR started on the process to invalidate a SMOG or STAR program license. Procrastination is not the answer.”

To review the new blog post about how to fight the Bureau of Automotive Repair and the perils and procrastination please visit If an invalidation, citation, accusation or just a plain letter from the Bureau of Automotive Repair has arrived to an auto repair shop, putting the note aside until later is not the best answer. Official letters from California’s Bureau of Automotive Repair may require immediate action.


Here is background to this release. California SMOG stations, STAR stations, and auto repair shops can be busy places. Customers may have waited until the last minute to get a car SMOG checked and cleared. The pressure to bring in the auto and get the certification to the DMV could be looming. Arriving to the DMV without a SMOG clearance can mean losing rights to driving a car until the problem can be resolved. Similarly, if a SMOG station has postponed responding to official correspondence from the state regulatory agency, the entire business could be at risk. Important letters from the BAR should not be sitting under a pile of paperwork. Shop owners may need to respond quickly and learn how to fight the Bureau of Automotive Repair, before it’s too late.

California auto repair shop owners and SMOG / STAR station owners may find the best response is to contact an expert automotive defense lawyer skilled in how to fight actions of the Bureau of Automotive Repair.
