The DMV website says that "a seller must provide evidence of a current smog certification", but they don't cite which law obligates a seller in doing so. Which law states that?

What if the seller sells a car without a smog certificate, which penalties is the seller subject to?


California Code 24007(b)(2):

Prior to or at the time of delivery for sale, the seller shall provide the purchaser a valid certificate of compliance or certificate of noncompliance, as appropriate, issued in accordance with Section 44015 of the Health and Safety Code.

  • Thanks for the answer. Do you know also what penalties are assessed to a seller who sells without smog certificate? Is sale rescinded in such cases? Do you know any references for previous lawsuits? – Gabriel Diego May 11 '16 at 21:44
