Sorry if this has been answered before. I need to get my California 06 Elise (factory original / no mods / 13,000 mile) Smog Checked again.

Im currently working in Vegas for the summer and I was hoping to get it Smog at the nearest California Station - NIPTON?

Questions
1. Can i get my Elise smog anywhere - or do i need to go to a special place
2. Do i need to worry about ramps etc?


thank you

You need to do the smog test in the same county your vehicle is registered in.
That's slightly true. From CA DMV page;

There are six counties that require smog certifications within certain Zip Codes only. These counties are:

El Dorado, Placer, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, and Sonoma.

Follow this link to determine which Zip Codes are included.

You think the mechanic will allow ME to drive up the ramps?
I found a local shop on Yelp that had good reviews and had actually done a few Lotus and exotics. When I pulled up we chatted for a second and went through the paper work. Once the car was ready to be pulled onto the rollers, he seemed a little timid so I just asked if we wanted me to pull it in. The guy was totally fine with it and I pulled it in and out, no problems at all...
