Vehicle registration renewal at Quality Automotive and Smog

Registration renewal for your California vehicle just got easier. Quality Automotive and Smog, known as your Trust Local Auto Care in Truckee, is now able to collect registration renewal fees and issue renewal stickers. “The vehicle registration renewal service is most valuable for those who are up against the deadline for renewal and don’t want to deal with going to the DMV,” said Lisa Trent, service advisor. No appointment needed and the process takes 10-15 minutes. Registration fees can be paid in order to avoid DMV late fees for vehicles that don’t pass the California Smog Check. Take your DMV renewal paperwork, proof of insurance and smog certification. Quality Automotive and Smog is located in the Crossroads SaveMart Center behind Bill’s Rotisserie. The registration renewal service is $39.25 plus fees and tags are immediately issued. For more information and hours call 530- 587-1933 or visit
