Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

I am afraid CA does not take any out of state Smog check. CA will allow you to apply for the renewal by filing a Statement of Facts form (Reg 256) or Temporary Smog Exemption (Reg 5103) with the DMV. You can file either form and they will issue the renewal and when you return to CA you have to get the smog test done and submit proof to DMV. See:
