Old Car Emissions Exemption No Longer Threatened

In 8 California Counties!

Congratulations!  The California old car hobby convinced California Senate legislators to amend legislation (S.B. 1549) that sought repeal of the state's current emissions test exemption for pre-1976 vehicles registered by new owners in the San Joaquin Valley Unified Air Pollution Control District.  The District includes eight counties in California's Central Valley.  Under the original bill, after Jan. 1, 2009, new owners seeking to register a pre-1976 vehicle in these eight counties would have been subject to emissions tests for the life of the vehicle.  Under the amendment, the repeal language was removed and the bill instead now requires the DMV to study the state's special license plate programs and recommend improvements.


Thanks to all of you for contributing to this successful resolution!
