I know people who have done it, usually take it to a bad part of town and when it fails they ask the guy while flashing a roll of 20s so what will it cost to fix it so it can pass. I personally have never had to do it though even on my cars that were missing emissions equipment they still passed the sniffers.

You dont have to bribe them here in CA...as soon as you walk in you just let them know your car wont pass(no cats,no smog pump etc ect) and they will "work on your car so it will pass"

+1 there's a smog guy down the street from my block, we always refer busines to him, i saw my car pass the sniffer, then he said "just come back in 2 hours, i'll try to make it pass" i wasnt going to argue, so came back, and what do u know, it passed.... with advanced timing, cracked smog lines, no tailpipes

I just have residence in TX and register my vehicle out of state. However, I have seen guys pass emissions for a few bucks to "fix" the emissions problem.

I have a question...How did you do that are you military? I wanted to register my car in oregon but I found out that if I have oregon plates I must have a oregon drivers license.......I was told that by a police officer that pulled me over when I was driving my girls car here in Ca

You register the car in a family members name out of state, get out of state plates, and when a cop asks you about it, YOU ARE BORROWING THE CAR.
