License Renewal

Repair Smog Technicians 

Technicians wishing to maintain their Repair license must keep ASE A6, A8 and L1 or Bar Specified Diagnostic Training current and complete bar update training. Note: Bar specified diagnostic training is not an alternative to ASE but another path to maintaining your license. The BAR will no longer accept a mix of ASE and ASE Alternative to satisfy the requirement after august of 2014.


The New Bar Specified Diagnostic and Repair Training has taken the place of the Old ASE alternative and certification is good for 5 years upon completion date.




License Renewal Process for Inspectors

All technicians that posses an Inspector license must take a Bar inspector update course equivalent to 4 hours in length available on the Bar website and is free of charge.

Once the update training has been completed submit a license renewal form with your proof of completion along with the $20 application fee to the Bar licensing division.
