PASS Repair Component

If you are a San Joaquin Valley resident and have owned your car for more than 6 months, you may be eligible for a FREE car emissions test, diagnostic inspection and repairs:

The PASS Repair Component offers a FREE car emissions test and diagnostic inspection at Tune In & Tune Up events held on weekends throughout the San Joaquin Valley. The vehicles that fail this free emissions test, are diagnosed with an emission related failure at the smog shop, and are found to be repairable, will receive a $500 VOUCHER for repairs at a participating Gold Shield certified smog shop.

For questions regarding Tune In Tune Up please contact our program partner; Valley Clean Air Now at

PASS Replacement Incentive

Since its adoption, the PASS Replacement and Retirement components have purchased over 700 polluting vehicles in the San Joaquin Valley, and have come to the end of the allocated funding. As a result applications for the program are no longer being accepted.

The District is working with the California Air Resources Board and the Bureau of Automotive Repair to bring exciting new updates to this program, and will utilize this opportunity to take the valuable feedback received from past participants and improve the program.

Information regarding these new components should be available this spring.

To be notified when these new programs are available, please sign up for the PASS email list by following this link.

Other Vehicle Retirement

If you would like to sell your vehicle for cash the State may be able to assist you with their Consumer Assistance Program by the Bureau of Automotive Repair.

The program provides $1,000 for unwanted vehicles that have either FAILED or PASSED their last Smog Check Test and that meet certain eligibility guidelines. For more information, visit BAR’s website. You can also obtain a copy of the application, or call BAR at (866) 272-9642.
