Isn't it just a voluntary test? It says in the pdf that you can refuse....

I love that the report confirms what we all know, with "overall failure" rate being twice as high as "emmissions failure" rate, we know that all the visual inspection and CARB EO numbers are straight BS.

It states in the PDF

'This data is only used to evaluate the performance of
California's emissions reduction programs. There are no consequences to you for
participating regardless of your emission equipment or emission levels.'

....I don't know if I believe this or not....
