    Thanks for that. Will it cost $22 or is it free?

    It doesn't say but I would assume they will ask for another fee... We shall see

    Just received my new CA HOV certificate and its valid up to 2022. I didn't re-apply or did anything.
    When I bought my car last Aug 2018 the sales guy said that my red sticker is valid only up to end of this yr. Then I need to re-apply to get a new sticker valid up to 2022.
    So maybe he is wrong not sure but I got my certificate and it matched my current red sticker on my car.

    Does the number on the new sticker match the old one? If so, I would keep spares in case you ever lose a bumper in a fender bender (hopefully not but you never know).

    They didn't send me a new sticker, just a certificate. On the certificate it match the number on my sticker currently on my car.

    Note: Green CAV decals are valid only until January 1, 2019. New green CAV decals are no longer issued. Vehicle owners issued green decals on or after January 1, 2017, who are eligible for the red decal, will be mailed, to their address on file, a pre-filled CAV decal application form with instructions and a return envelope. The pre-filled applications are expected to be mailed around October 1, 2018.

    Has anyone received his/her pre-filled application from CA DMV yet?

    Anyone else notice that all the fields were not prefilled in? I'm wondering if I should fill in those fields or send it in as is? Also, don't forget to send the $22 check.

    If I read that correctly, in 2020 you'll be able to sell your old plug-in and upgrade to something new.

    Plus, all older used HV/EV vehicles with expired white and green stickers will now cost at least $2-3k more just for the ability to apply for a new sticker (assuming you meet the income requirements). Ironically, this may price the vehicles out of the lower income range while landing them right into the sweet spot of the more affluent.

    I can see all sorts of loopholes in this - sell your used vehicle to your kids or relatives and get them hooked up with a brand new red sticker while picking yourself up that 2020 Prime or Tesla.
