Crack an egg, teach someone to drive a snowmobile, brew your own beer - Oregon cares. And it has a license for that. Business-owners in one of the most license-heavy states in the Union, need to carefully research the many requirements of their state, county and local governments before doing business. After all, you can't make an omelet without cracking a few eggs -- but you can't do that without applying and paying a fee.
In Oregon, smog or emission check facilities are common in states with tight air pollution controls. States like California and New York allow facilities that are not auto repair businesses to perform emission tests and issue official reports required for vehicle licensing and renewal. Emissions testing shops must hold special state licenses and in some cases, licensing agreements to operate their computer systems.
