I'm a repeat customer. They are friendly, courteous and efficient and got the test done in about 20 min. I call first to make sure it's a good time to come. If you use a price ...


These people do NOT charge the price you see on their website - bait and switch - it's MORE expensive when you get there!! While I was there I heard ANOTHER customer say ""That's ...

Avoid! Avoid! Avoid! 1/15/2012

These people do NOT charge the price you see on their website - bait and switch - it's MORE expensive when you get there!! While I was there I heard ANOTHER customer say ""That's not the price you quoted me over the phone""! I suspect that most if not ALL of their ""rave"" reviews are phony - those wonderful experiences just DO NOT jive with what I experienced. And, they are weirdly rude. Do NOT even think of going here! more

Trustworthy and learn an invaluable tip! 3/6/2009

This was my year for a smog check and luckily I received a coupon for this establishment because I really didn't know where to go or who to trust. So, I not only saved money, the business is trustworthy. If you don't pass, your second test is free! The test took only 10 minutes and I didn't have to wait. Not only was I treated professionally and friendly -- the owner drove my car into the stall and the technician chatted me up like a human being and not just another number -- the staff was knowledgeable and helpful about the next steps in receiving my registration. They gave me a very good tip on how to bypass the DMV's lengthy wait for stickers. As a AAA Member (hint), this info was golden. Take your car there if you want to learn the tip and if you want great service! Pros: Located off the 10 Freeway @ La Cienega more

Quick & Pleasant experience - NO HASSLE 9/4/2008

It was a pleasant surprise for me, being a young woman to go into an auto shop and not feel like you're being taken advantage of because most women don't know a lot about cars. The attendant didn't try to take me for a fool and helped me just as he did the gentlemen that came in before me. I was happy and felt like I got a fair deal. It was certainly refreshing to get what you paid for - in and out no hassle no problems not a bunch of money out of my pocket. Thank you Smog Test Only #2 - I will recommend this place to my friends and family - FOR SURE. - Armin more

Last minute smog checks - National Test only #2 will HELP YOU 9/4/2008

I waited 'till last day before my DMV registration was due to get my car smog check done and I was in the area so I went into the National Test only on 2025 S La Cienega Bl. and was out of there in no time and made it to DMV and took care of my registration. I was impressed. It was a quick and painfull experience and as a woman I'm always hesitant about going into auto shops because we always get taken advantage of - but not this place. The attendance was nice, professional and helpful. I will go back or recommend anyone that needs to get a quick and fast service - DON'T HESITATE TO GO. Pros: Service & prices more

Candi G 8/30/2008

I was in and out very quickly with no appointment. Very friendly and efficient. I got a nice cold bottle of water while waiting which was very hospitable! . Definitely recommend this place for those who want a nice, friendly, fast way to take care of business. more

Rude, Lied about Prices (Coupon Does Not Make Up for Inflated Charges) - AVOID! 6/21/2008

I found the $15 off coupon through CitySearch, which was enough to intrigue me, so I called to find out how much they charged for the smog test on my particular model of car. He told me $40 and I said I'd be right there. When I arrived, the service area appeared to be empty, so I stood in the waiting area for a few minutes trying to figure out how to summon someone. When there was a particularly loud explosion on the television going in the background I realized that the guy working there was actually hiding behind a partition watching TV. Once I finally got his attention he took my coupon and told me the smog check would be $55 (regularly it's the exorbitant price of $59.95). I told him that the man on the phone had quoted me $40, and the attendant said, ""Well, he's not here now."" He was not only unapologetic, but also spoke as if the ""misunderstanding"" were my fault. I chose not to have my smog check done there, so I cannot comment on the quality of service, but because they both lied to me and were rude, I urge you to AVOID National Smog #2. Pros: None. Cons: Inflated Prices, Rude more

Super Fast, Super Friendly, Fast and Easy. Very Painless. Thanks Guys.... Will be back for my other car. more

Very Professional Guys 4/8/2008

I don't know where the others guys have been who have left a bad FB's. I have sent at least 5 people to get their car's smoged with National and all 5 have been very happy. It appears someone is purposly leaving negative FB, to discredit these two very friendly and honest guys. It is sad to think there are people out there who will steep that low to discredit honest people. National, keep up the good work I will continue sending people to you for smog check. more
