California CAV Decals

To those that took delivery in CA and applied for your CAV decals, how long did it take from when you sent in the form / check? I sent mine in on 2/16 and haven't heard back yet (and the check hasn't hit my bank).

Takes forever. I also sent my in on February 12, and DMV still hasn't cashed the check yet. CARB website says 30 days. Right

Good news! DMV finally cashed my check. So it'll probably be an additional 30 days before I get the HOV stickers.

I sent mine in December 2018 and it was just delivered today. Long time. We thought they lost it or there was some problem we were unaware of. I was expecting a you didn't fill out something correctly form, didn't receive that just took a long time.

On another note I didn't realize that they want me to place four stickers on the car! My car is too pretty for four stickers. I'm seriously having second thoughts if it is worth it. I have fast pass already so not sure how much I'm going to gain by having diamond access that isn't already fast pass. Hmmmmm.

If you don't sign up for the stickers now, can you do it later and get the years of carpool lane coverage later?

no, the carpool program for EV's will terminate forever in 2022 as the new Governor Moonbeam makes owning an EV a stupid option for California unless you have a lot of solar and batteries hooked up for your car use at home.

Use it while you can.

Also, get used to using Waze as your GPS system for 2022. Carpool lane surfing very effective using waze.

Been surfing the car pool lane for a long time before EV use made it redundant and never got caught, though I had a few close calls.

Looks like those skills will be leaned on again in around 2022 once again.

PG&E going to be turning up power costs 3x to cover their and the state of California Incompetence by then anyways.

Remarkable reading Mark Twain comments about California and San Francisco political bungling from over 100 years ago.

Seems nothing has changed since he made the observation......

I bought paint protection film which I am going to attached the CAV stickers to. Cut it out to size then attach that to the body of the car. That way, you can take it off as a whole when the stickers expire. Otherwise, that CAV stickers are a pain to take off.

Good suggestion, Thx. My car already has 3M paint protection all over. I would have to put paint protection on top of paint protection.

I will forgo the car pool lane surfing. I also prefer Google maps to Waze. As a super commuter I tried both for extended periods of time and found waze takes you off the freeway far too many times for such little game it's a hassle. That is with a 65 mile commute one way.
