Free smog checks in Bakersfield this Saturday

Free smog checks in Bakersfield this Saturday, Bakersfield and Kern County residents can take advantage of another free smog check this Saturday, courtesy of the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District (APCD). Additionally, if the vehicle fails the test, the first 525 participants will be provided a voucher worth up to $500 that can be used for repairs at participating smog repair shops.

Part of the San Joaquin Valley APCD's Polluting Automobile Scrap and Salvage (PASS) program, the "Tune-In & Tune-Up" event will be held at the Kern County Fairgrounds on Saturday, May 5, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

To be eligible, you must be a resident of the San Joaquin Valley and have owned your car for more than six months.

Although no smog certificates will be issued, the event offers a free way to determine if your car needs repairs to pass the test and a way to pay for those repairs.

Free food and drink will also be available while supplies last. For more information, please contact the APCD's program partner; Valley Clean Air Now at 1-800-806-2004.
