Many of California’s professional licensing boards, especially those within the health care field (CA Medical Board, CA Dental Board, CA Board of Registered Nursing, CA Board of Occupational Therapy, CA Board of Physical Therapy, CA Board of Licensed Vocational Nursing, CA Board of Psychology, CA Board of Behavioral Sciences, CA Chiropractic Board, CA Osteopathic Medical Board, CA Board of Respiratory Care, etc…) have diversion programs for licensees suspected of drug or alcohol problems. (Note, these Board-driven diversion programs are separate and distinct from criminal diversion programs enumerated in CA Penal Code section 1000.)
Citations and Accusations Brought by the CA Bureau of Automotive Repair Against Automotive Repair Dealers and Smog Check Stations
The California Bureau of Automotive Repair frequently monitors authorized Automotive Repair Shops and licensed Smog Shops all over California. As part of its monitoring process the BAR will conduct undercover operations. These operations may include bringing in a car to a repair shop to see if the shop makes unnecessary repairs and overcharges the customer.
