Out of State Vehicle

Used F150 Registerable in California?

2016 Ford F150 with 5.0 engine and 32,000 miles. Currently located at dealer in Alabama. Hood sticker reads "not for sale in states with California emissions." Does this truck meet the criteria for registration in California? It's over 7,500 miles. Vin: 1FTEW1EF6GKExxxxx.


At the time this truck was first sold, it was not eligible for registration in California due to its emission systems configuration. Since it is now considered a USED vehicle, it is eligible for California registration so long as it is able to pass a California smog inspection. You should verify this information with the dealership which you intend on purchasing the vehicle from. They should guarantee the truck will pass California emissions and obtain registration as part of the vehicle sale.
