Yup. You cant register or even sell a car without a clean bill of health here.
You are allowed only ONE monitor system to be "not ready". If you want to sell a car with the check engine light on, YOU HAVE TO SELL IT OUT OF STATE.
or scrap it. We do have a smog problem here in this city of 6+ million.
The city spreads out 50 miles in every direction, so you absolutely need a ride
to survive here. But government red tape can wreak havoc in the life of someone who is plagued by that check engine light. I had a van whose tailpipe
emissions was squeaky clean, but the check engine light was on. I couldnt get a tag!
