    It was discretionary. It was most annoying as well as there are a lot of loud open pipe Harley’s running around that are twice as loud and yet they never lifted a finger towards them.

    Loud exhausts are no longer fix-it tickets though. Can't wait to see how that plays out for people.
    Thanks. That makes sense. It's worded good enough... not sure how I came out with the original interpretation.

    hey guys, new guy here I work at California DMV, and yeah I heard about the change to 8 years as well! Nothing official "on paper" for me to tell customers yet, but it was discussed and it's totally sweet. Helpful since I'm all of a sudden gona be paying triple the reg fees i was paying before.

    Still no talk on budging on the "rolling smog", it used to be vehicles 30 model years or older, but has stood at vehicles model year 1975 and older exempt since 2005

    Diesels get smogged now, too. Anything model year 1998 up to brand new is subject to biennial smog in applicable counties.

    Vehicle transfers are exempt from smog for the first 6 model years, used to be 4, when that change takes effect.
