Why Be A Smog Spotter?

Keep Nevada’s Air Clean

A smoking vehicle isn't just bad for the environment-it's bad for everyone's health as well. Vehicle pollutants can cause cardiovascular disease, asthma or even lung cancer. It looks ugly on the outside, and even worse on the inside. But here in Nevada, there's something you can do about it. Be a Smog Spotter and report smoking vehicles. The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will investigate reports on any vehicle with a Nevada registration, including heavy-duty diesel trucks and vehicles based in rural areas.

How The Program Works

Step 1 cloud graphic


If you see a car emitting excessive smoke, take note of the license plate number and type of car. If you're driving, wait until you reach a safe spot before submitting the report.

Step 2 cloud graphic


Visit SmogSpotter.com to report the vehicle or call 844-END-SMOG

The DMV Compliance Enforcement Division sends an advisory letter to the owner of the smoking vehicle. This letter can require the vehicle to be inspected by a DMV Emissions Lab or require the owner to make necessary repairs to reduce excessive emissions.
