I WAS paying around $375 a year for a 99 f250 then the every other year smog fee. But, that was before the increase in November. I gathered it would be over $425 that was in Yuba County (Yuba city, Marysville CA area). Just gotta move and you'll be set. Moved back home after new job opening now little over $100 for 2 yrs.
I have the truck in my signature. I'm paying ~$350 total each year + SMOG fees, for me, on the odd years. ($8.95 for the certificate + about $60.00 for the testing) I'm in Sacramento County - Some counties don't have SMOG testing.
I'm guessing it will be higher because when they passed the higher fuel tax, they also raised part of the registration fees. I'm paying again in June, the first time since all that. So...we'll see.......
Mine was 330 a few months ago, 02 single cab. I hear if you take it to the dmv with a camper in the back, you can convert it to a passenger vehicle plate (you have to surrender your plates) and get the weight fee removed. A couple buddies were taking about it over the weekend. Buddies 98 cummins, he is only paying 86 a year after that. Downside is supposedly you can get a ticket if you're pulled over without a camper in. I feel like the officer would really have to be on it though. And the ticket is less than the weight fee apparently lol
