Auto Repair at Home

The City of Woodland has developed a proactive program for enforcement of automobile repair outside in residential neighborhoods.

Minor Repair Work

Only minor repair work can be performed within a residential district if that minor repair work is performed completely inside a fully enclosed structure.

Minor repair work on a vehicle can be performed outside a fully enclosed structure where the elapsed time between the beginning and the end of the repair do not exceed forty-eight hours.

Other Work

All other work on a vehicle must be preformed within a completely enclosed building.

No painting of a vehicle is permitted within a residential district. All major repair work must be performed within a fully enclosed structure.


The motor vehicles repair guidelines are outlined in Section 14A-1-3-1 City of Woodland Municipal Code.
