Do a search on "California Diesel Inspection Law" and you'll get places you can search regarding this dumb law or try the one below.
My friend --you are my hero. Being directed by you to the DMV and learning from you that a vehicle greater than 14,000 #'s is EXEMPT has allowed this day to end with a smile on my face. MANY THANKS!!
The DMV site: http://www.dmv.ca.gov/vr/smogfaq.htm
says top of page in the first paragraph "Currently, smog inspections are required for all vehicles except
diesel powered vehicles manufactured prior to 1998 or with a Gross Vehicle Weight (GVWR) of more than 14,000 lbs, electric, natural gas powered vehicles over 14,000 lbs, hybrids, motorcycles, trailers, or gasoline powered vehicles 1975 and older.
