Smog Check Repair Technician License

Bar Specified Diagnostic and Repair Training (DNR)

This Diagnostic & Repair Training course meets the California Smog Repair License exam prerequisites. This class combines all course content for the ASE National Testing for A-6 Electrical, A-8 Engine Performance, and L-1 Advanced Engine into one course. This class can be taken as an alternative class to taking the National ASE Testing.  Books and materials are included in tuition price. BAR’s Specified Diagnostic Training Certification is good for five years, the same as if you had the A6, A8, and L1 tests.

NOTE: All technicians, whether current or perspective, can no longer mix and match the ASE required courses A-6, A-8, and L-1 with ASE Alternative A-6, A-8, and L-1 courses.  That is, candidates must take and pass all three ASE courses or take the ASE Alternative course in order to meet the requirements. Example: a candidate cannot take and pass the ASE A-6 and ASE A-8 then fail the ASE L-1 and take the ASE L-1 Alternative for the purpose of satisfying the requirements for licensing.
