    I sent out my application on 1/4/19. I still don’t have my HOV sticker. Anyone still waiting after a month and a week?

    Sent mine in on 12/31. My check was cashed on 2/1 and it arrived a few days earlier. Check your bank statement to see if that $22 check is cashed.

    Bought my car on 1/11/19 and received sticker on 2/12/19.
    weird thing is, dealer applied for the HOV decal for the car when they file it with DMV (I wasn’t aware of it)

  5. You guys have to pay for yours? In B.C. (Canada) you just fill out a 1 page application and they mail you a sticker. The website says it can take like 4-6 weeks due to demand but I got mine in under 2 weeks.

    In California, we pay $22 to get the decals.

    Some dealers are giving them out for free and paying for it out of their profits as they are tied directly to the state DMV.

    Yes, some dealers have a full time DMV POC (point of contact) which directly interfaces with the DMV computers and can issue plates and HOV stickers - my dealer (Norm Reeves Honda) has this amenity.

    I received my plates in less than a week - mailed direct from my dealer instead of DMV.
    Still waiting on my HOV stickers...

    Most smaller dealers don't have a dedicated DMV POC and the plates and HOV stickers come from DMV.
