Official “accusations” by the Bureau of Automotive Repair are a matter of public record. You can search for them. However, if you should happen to be the target of an accusation, you still have rights. But you should bear one thing in mind, and that is that trying to handle an accusation by the Bureau of Automotive Repair on your own could land you in very hot water.
Look at it this way: whether you are an auto technician or a SMOG or repair shop owner, the Bureau of Automotive Repair can put you out of business. If you own a business you are probably also a qualified auto technician, having worked your way up through the ranks, so to speak, to the point where you set up your own workshop. All of which is to be applauded. You may not even do any day to day repair work yourself, rather, employing others to do that, so if there is an error it was not you who created it.
However, it doesn’t matter whether you are personally at fault or not if the Bureau of Automotive Repair fully believes that you or someone you employ is at fault. From their point of view, the way forward is to close you down.
Now the Bureau of Automotive Repair exists to protect the population of California from the worst effects of emissions and smog, and that is actually something that we should all stand up for. However, it goes to extreme extents in order to find and eliminate people and businesses that it considers are breaking the law, to the point that it sends out undercover cars in the hope that they will fool you, or your employee, into making an error. Sad, but true.
