NOTE: All technicians, whether current or perspective, can no longer mix and match the ASE required courses A-6, A-8, and L-1 with ASE Alternative A-6, A-8, and L-1 courses.  That is, candidates must take and pass all three ASE courses or take the ASE Alternative course in order to meet the BAR requirements. Example: a candidate cannot take and pass the ASE A-6 and ASE A-8 then fail the ASE L-1 and take the ASE L-1 Alternative in order to satisfy the requirements for licensing.

This class may be bypassed if you meet the criteria from the Smog Check Repair Flow Chart below.
