Smile How many states exempt diesel vehicles for emissions?

My vehicle is registered in Maryland. I was wondering how many states exempt diesel vehicles for emissions?

  • Qualified hybrid vehicle
  • Motorcycles
  • Vehicles registered as a farm truck, farm truck tractor or farm area vehicle.
  • Historic or Antique vehicles
  • New vehicles for the first 24 months after titling and registration.
  • Fire apparatus owned or leased by the State of Maryland, a county, municipality, volunteer fire department or rescue squad.
  • Ambulances currently exempted will remain exempt.
  • Vehicles registered to senior citizens over 70 and over who drive 5,000 miles per year or less (if co-owned, both owners must be over 70).
  • Vehicles registered as a Class N street rod vehicle.
  • A military vehicle owned by the federal government and used for tactical, combat, or relief operations, or for training for these operations
  • Vehicles registered as a Class H school vehicle or Class P passenger bus

NC is "sorta" exempt. They don't plug in OBD scanner. They don't sniff the tailpipe. They don't do a hard rev and look for smoke. But I think they might flunk it if check engine light is on. They look under the hood, but I'm not sure what they are looking for.

NC is exempt for diesels. They don't care if the CEL is on. They also don't look for emissions equipment.

You only have to deal with emissions if the car is a 2009 or newer if you live in one of the counties that require testing. I live in one of those counties. But since my Passat TDI is a 2005, my car is exempt.

However, when I got a car registration bill in the mail a few years back the form said I had to take the car in for testing. As I am a stinker, I thought best to take it in (taking a printout along from the DMV website). I drive up there and before anything is done, the test guy asks, me "Sir, is that a diesel." I replied, "Yes. Here is a printout from the DMV that says that my year of diesel vehicle does not need testing, but I got this in the mail saying that I do." Then he calls up Madison and gets the lowdown on what the deal is and of course he made sure the supervisor annotated it in my registration.

Have not had to do anything other than write the check each year since.

All you gotta pass here in Texas is a safety inspection However, only 17 out of the 254 counties in the state require emissions testing on gassers. Motorcycles are also exempt.

Here in Nevada it's weird. There is no diesel testing UNLESS you live in one of two counties. The only problem is that 90+% percent of the people in Nevada live in those two counties. Clark County (Las Vegas) and Washoe county (Reno and Carson City). Most of Nevada is empty desert owned by the Federal government (some leased to mining companies) with very few people.

They don't have emissions testing in my area, but that's good to know anyway. Thanks for the 411
