Wait time for California DMV carpool stickers?

Tue Feb 12, 2013 6:57 pm

I mailed in the "Application for Clean Air Vehicle Decal" form + check to the DMV over a month ago and I've received nothing yet. How long should I expect to wait? I am eager to get in that carpool lane :)

Mine took over two months to get. But they do eventually arrive. The first clue they were coming was when my check finally cleared. :D

I expect that January applications are a bit slow because of holiday issues and, December is a bigger month for new EV sales. Shouldn't be too much longer.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

California DMV full of stupid people, why can't they issue White Stickers when you apply for the plates? The reason because these retard want to earn overtime, by milking the process. Now I know why all those people are so fat, becasue they are stupid and simply incompetent.
A designated EV plate would make more sense, that's for sure.

I just checked, hoping my check had been retrieved from the same DMV circular file as yours, but no such luck...

I finally received my stickers on March 2nd (almost 2 months since I had mailed in the application). The check cleared just a few days before I got the stickers. Somewhere in the middle I called this DMV number to check up, just to make sure my application didn't get lost in the mail: (916) 657-8035

I just called that number (thanks) and was told they had just opened applications received by 2/13 (so, they had no info on mine, mailed 2/20) and that applications are presently taking 7-8 weeks from receipt to completion.

BTW, is it correct that these stickers not only allow you to use HOV lanes, but give you the appplicable HOV discounts on All bay area bridges, whether you pay by fastrack or not?
