Beginning January 1, 2020, DMV will verify a vehicle's compliance status with the Truck & Bus Regulation before registering a heavy-duty vehicle in California.
The following types of vehicles should be reported in EDVR as soon as possible:
CARB and DMV will work to identify as many vehicle owners as possible and explain the necessary EDVR process. However, we may not reach everyone. We urge vehicle owners to identify if their vehicles fall under the following categories and report in EDVR before their DMV registration is denied unnecessarily.
If you believe your diesel (or diesel converted) vehicle(s) needs to be reported in EDVR to avoid unnecessary DMV registration denial, proceed by visiting the Excluded Diesel Vehicle Reporting (EDVR) System.
To minimize the possibility of registration delays, please submit documentation that is complete, legible, and accurate, well in advance of your registration due date. Submitting documentation that is incomplete, illegible, and/or inaccurate will result in rejection of this form, which may subject you to DMV fees for temporary or late registration.
Beginning January 1, 2020, DMV will verify a vehicle's compliance status with the Truck & Bus Regulation before registering a heavy-duty vehicle in California. Senate Bill 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 (SB 1), was signed into law on April 28, 2017. This bill states that DMV must check to ensure that vehicles are compliant with, or exempt from, CARB’s Truck and Bus Regulation. The new DMV compliance verification process will better enforce the regulation and level the playing field for businesses throughout California. DMV will do a preliminary compliance check from their own records, and a second check using CARB data for all vehicles known or suspected to be subject to the regulation.
If a vehicle is not compliant with the regulation, DMV will no longer register that vehicle, starting January 1, 2020.
While the process to verify compliance with CARB regulations is thorough, there may be vehicles that we cannot identify. In order to prevent a vehicle's registration from being denied in error, we have developed the Excluded Diesel Vehicle Reporting system so that vehicle owners can provide information that will be used to determine whether a vehicle is compliant with, or exempt from, the Truck and Bus Regulation.
