The goal of VIP is to reduce emissions by replacing old, high-polluting vehicles with newer, lower-emission vehicles. VIP funding is distributed through the Air Resources Board and then to the local air districts.



This program is limited to owners/operators with fleets of 10 or fewer vehicles that have been operating at least 75% in California during the previous 24 months. The goal of the program is to reduce emissions from in-use heavy-duty trucks in small fleets by replacing older engines with Model Years 2010 (or newer) emissions compliant models.



California Fleet Solutions works with VIP approved dealers throughout California and can help you navigate the process and find a dealers you can TRUST!
