Vehicle Emission Standards
–A Message From the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources
Does my car have to meet California emission standards?
Vermont adopted the California Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) Program. This means that all new vehicles model year 2000 up to model year 2004, sold in Vermont with a weight rating of less than 6000 lbs. have to be California-certified. New vehicles with a model year of 2004 and later, sold in Vermont with a weight rating of less than 14,001 lbs. have to be California-certified. This program requires dealerships to sell the cleanest cars available to Vermont residents.
