Out Of State Smog Question

CA smog question

I know that the seller is liable to pay for smog repairs in California if they sell a car private party and it doesn’t pass smog. Does that liability pertain to out-of-state sellers as well?


If you are the out of state seller with a car titled and registered outside of CA, you are NOT required to smog it if the buyer is from CA and wants to register it. It’s the buyer’s problem and they need to be careful of their out of state purchase.
