    Hi All:
    I mailed my application for my Honda Clarity HOV Sticker on January 26, 2019 but haven't received anything yet. Furthermore, the DMV has yet to even cash my check; so it's been about 8 weeks and not a peep. Calling the DMV is useless. So do I just need to be more patient? Any recommendations?

    [​IMG] If you mailed it in the end of January, allow 60 days to receive yours.

    Mine was mailed in mid January and I just got mine a few days ago....

    I mailed my application at the end of January and just got my stickers. They take their sweet time.

    You'd think they would just issue drivers different color license tags instead of those huge, ugly stickers?

    I think they don't want the HOV credentials to be moved from car-to-car easily by thieves or unscrupulous car owners.

    I saw a pair of kids quickly get away from the rear of my car when I hit the button to unlock my Clarity at a Fryes over the weekend.

    I think that they were trying to steal either my plate, registration sticker, and/or HOV stickers.

    I was parked in the far corner away from other cars in order to avoid scratches. As soon as I hit the button, they quickly jumped on their bikes and sped away.

    I can't think of any other reason that they were paying so much attention to the rear of my car.

    Just an FYI.

    Yes, they probably wanted the annual registration tags or your HOV stickers to resell as I see them for sale on Craigslist and local swapmeets....

    I sent application first week of FEB and finally got the check cleared Friday before then five days later I received stickers in the mail. When I contacted DMV to get status the help desk reported it takes 60 days to review application/approval then seven for stickers to arrive (on average).

    On my old Honda Accord, someone once swiped my registration sticker. I was taught to slice an "x" in it with a razor blade to make it fall apart if someone tries to remove it.

    I'm definitely not going to do this with the HOV stickers though:)
