Anyway, after 45 minutes on hold, a DMV agent just told me if the car passes smog and we bring all the appropriate paperwork to DMV, we can walk out with a valid registration, so there's hope....if it passes smog.
I spoke to my brother. The shop gave him a copy of how to get the monitors to turn on (see below) so it can pass the smog test. They told him it normally takes 150-200 miles. In traveling to different smog test stations, he's put about 40 miles on the car that have probably turned on some of these monitors.

He's no on his way to AAA to see if they can issue a temporary operating permit. (I totally forgot that AAA in CA can do a lot of DMV paperwork much faster and easier than at the DMV.)

This is what's needed:

ALL MONITORS - URBAN (CITY) DRIVE CYCLE - ALL MODELS NOT LISTED, ALL ENGINES
Steps:
1. State the engine. Idle for 20 seconds.

2. Accelerate at part throttle to 30 mph. Cruise at 20-30 mph for 2 minutes. Stop the vehicle; idle for 40 seconds.

3. Accelerate at part throttle to 25 mph in 15 seconds. Cruise at 17-25 mph for 15 seconds. Accelerate to 40 mph. Cruise at 40-56 mph for 2 minutes. Decelerate to 0. Idle for 15 seconds.

4. Accelerate at part throttle 28-36 mph for 25 seconds. Decelerate to 0 in 15 seconds. Idle for 6 seconds.

5. Accelerate to 30 mph and back to 0 in 25 seconds. Idle for 20 seconds.

6. Accelerate at part throttle to 35 mph; cruise at 35 mph for 30 seconds. Decelerate to 0. Idle for 6 seconds.

7. Accelerate at part throttle to 25-26 mph and back to 0 in 40-50 seconds. idle for 20-25 seconds. Repeat this step.

8. Accelerate at part throttle to 26 mph and back to 0 in 30 seconds. Idle for 15 seconds.

9. Accelerate at part throttle to 23 mph. Drive in a stop-and-go manner from 0-28 mph for 70 seconds. Accelerate at part throttle to 33 mph. cruise between 25-35 mph, varying the speed smoothly.

10. Stop and accelerate gradually to 28 mph. Cruise at 20-28 mph for 60 seconds. Idle for 30 seconds.

11. Drive in a stop-and-go manner for between 17-27 mph for 1-1/2 minutes. idle for 15 seconds.

12. Accelerate from 0-23 mph and back to 0 in 20 seconds. Idle for 10 seconds.

13. Accelerate at part throttle to 22 mph and back to 0 in 45 seconds. Idle for 10 seconds.

14. Accelerate at part throttle. Cruise at 20-30 mph for 60 seconds. Idle for 25 seconds.

15. Accelerate steadily to 22 mph and back to 0 in 35 seconds.
