CARB Clean Truck Check

CARB Clean Truck Check

California Air Resources Board (CARB) extended the Clean Truck Check reporting deadline, allowing heavy-duty truck owners an extra month for compliance. Initial reporting and fee payment for 2023 was required by January 31, 2024, using the new Clean Truck Check-Vehicle Inspection System (CTC-VIS) database. The program aims to reduce air pollution by restricting highly polluting trucks, promoting prompt emissions control system repairs, and enabling remote smog-check submissions.

Reporting applies to vehicles over 14,000 lbs. GVWR using diesel or alternative fuels in California, regardless of registration origin.

The regulation targets heavy-duty vehicle emissions, projected to reduce nitrogen and particulate matter emissions significantly by 2037.

Clean Truck Check aligns with California’s plan to improve air quality, backed by a $624 million funding plan. This plan supports incentives for zero-emission vehicles, emphasizing equity. Funding includes vouchers for low-income residents, an e-bike incentive project, aid for school districts, and support for various mobility projects. The goal is to transition fleets to zero-emission options, contributing to California’s success in surpassing zero-emission vehicle goals.
