What is the CARB Block DMV Registration For Older Transport Vehicles?

The California Air Resources Board has passed a new regulation, known as the Truck and Bus Regulation, that will affect all carriers that have and use trucks in the state of California. By 2020, all trucks manufactured before 2011 will be blocked from vehicle registration until they are replaced with a newer vehicle, or have the engine replaced with a newer one (made after 2010) in the same vehicle.

The goal of the Truck and Bus Regulation is to reduce harmful emissions among carriers in order to meet health standards that apply to other vehicles used in the state. It also applies to buses and other types of vehicles weighing between 14,000 and 26,000 pounds. Enforcement will be rolled out gradually, depending mainly on the production year of the vehicle, with older vehicles (2004 and older) needing to comply as of Jan. 1, 2020 and newer vehicles (up to 2010) having slightly more time with a cap at Jan. 1, 2023.

Vehicles which have not met the requirements will be blocked from registration starting in 2020, with the exception of those trucks and vehicles which are exempt from diesel regulations. Generally speaking, the regulation applies to diesel trucks and buses weighing more than 14,000 pounds.

Goals & Possible Outcomes of the CARB Registration Block

The target goal of the program is to increase safety, accountability and transparency throughout the transport industry, particularly as it relates to vehicle emissions. Though the program does not take affect in its entirety until 2020, they standards do currently apply to some sectors of transport, namely trucks and buses. What this means is that some vehicles may already be noncompliant with the law so it’s important to make sure you’re aware of the laws as they currently stand, as well as what impact they may have in the near future.

Goal Of Improving Efficiency Of Transport

Transport Industry Resources

SmartWay Program - The SmartWay Program was started by the Environmental Protection Agency with the goal of improving efficiency and reducing emissions in transport carriers. The voluntary program helps to establish benchmarks for emissions and sustainability throughout the industry.

TRUCRS - The Truck Regulation Upload, Compliance, and Reporting System (TRUCRS) is an online tool to help carriers report information about their fleet to ensure they are in compliance with current standards.

★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
