You may see this logo, but do you know what it means? ASE Certified means one or more technicians in the facility have passed tests given by ASE. Technicians are tested on 8 different vehicle systems. When a technician passes all 8 tests, they received the ASE Master Certified Technician status. Then they qualify to be tested on the Level 1 and Level 2 Advanced Engine Performance Specialist and the X1-Advanced Level Exhaust & Undercar Specialist. Currently, All About Automotive has on staff 2 ASE Master Certified Technicians with one of them also having qualified as a Level 1 and Level 2 Advanced Engine Performance and X1 Exhaust & Undercar Specialist. Our other technicians are currently working towards an ASE Certification.
The Automotive Service Association (ASA) advances professionalism and excellence in the automotive repair industry through education, representation and member services. AAA has been a member of this association since 2000. ASA members must keep up to date with evolving technology by attending classes. They also have access to the latest technical and regulatory information. In short, they’re equipped to work on today’s vehicles.
All About Automotive is one of the independent automotive repair facilities partnering with the DEQ to administer the DEQ Too program. In addition to our regular services we can now take care of your DEQ too.
Your emissions data is transmitted electronically to DEQ, after which you can go to the website www.DEQToo.org to learn if your vehicle passed and pay for your Clean Air Certificate. Once you’ve paid for your certificate you can then complete your registration online using DMV’s online renewal system, or you can test at a DEQ Clean Air Station as usual. Choose the most convenient option for your particular situation on any given day.
Only 2005 and newer model year vehicles qualify for the DEQ Too. At All About Automotive, Inc. we charge a Device Usage Fee of $30.00, in addition to the DEQ test fee. An appointment is not required and the All About Automotive process takes about 10 minutes to complete.
