    My Prime has the green sticker and do I have to pay another $22 to get red sticker? I just got a letter back from DVM asking me to pay.

    I just got a letter on October 15th 2018, from the DMV in California, with a form already filled out for the most part, to apply for red HOV stickers. I'm sending them a $22 money order, to be mailed with the fully-filled-out form on October 17th. I purchased my 2017 Prius Prime in February 2017. I'll keep you posted on the progress of my application.

    got mine today 10/16. filled out EVERYTHING and sending them a check. this should be interesting since i sent them a $22 check they lost then i had to pay a $34 "lost/late" fee for it totaling $52 AND had to wait at the DMV for 7 hours to get it worked out. these stickers only lasted 7 months before having to be redone. no wonder everyone and there grandmother use the carpool lane w/o the legal stickers especially since theres no law enforcing this "privilege".

    Can someone tell me if their is anyone who purchased their Prius in 2017, but their sticker was issued in 2016 because the dealership had requested it, if they got an application. I am trying to find out for someone if the DMV is sending these people applications too.

    If your sticker was issued in 2016, you are probably out of luck... I guess I was lucky my dealership was terrible and didn't have a sticker ready as I bought on 1/1/17 but didn't get sticker until March '17.

    Got my application too a couple of days ago and mailed in today with a check.

    Just got my new red stickers in the mail today (after receiving the filled in form from the DMV and mailing it in). Glad they're sending them out early.

    No they are out of luck, unless there has been a law change. A few 2017 Prime Owners posting here are out of luck because the dealer had pre-applied 2016 stickers. In fact we even have some Primes purchased in 2018 that are disqulaified (2017 MY holdovers with 2016 stickers).

    Plug-In America is collecting signatures on a petition, but Plug-In America is mainly saying BEV owners deserve special treatment (not PHEVs).

    Also I understand there is a new Ca. law allowing lower income owners onto HOV even if the plug-in vehcile is HOV_expired status. Again I suspect that law might be BEV-only, but I am not sure, I would like clarification on that new rule.

    When did you mail out your form? I mailed out two weeks, DMV has not cashed my check yet.

    Of those that have received one, what option is checked under the "I am requesting:" column? I may need to fill out a blank form myself and am wondering what option to check.

    Did your car come with a sticker already when purchased? If so you and you purchased it in early 2017 then you likely didn't get one because you don't qualify.

    I also received the filled-out form around Oct 16 and sent it in, but I still haven't heard back from them as of Nov 13. Check not cashed yet. Maybe they are buried under all the renewals that were returned? Has anyone else who sent back the pre-filled-out form gotten their decals or had their check cashed?

    Didn't get mine yet either, and I sent mine in right away like everyone else. My guess is that it's just not a top priority since the old stickers are still good for another month and a half. Someone I know renewed their license at the DMV on Halloween, about two weeks after I sent the form in for the new sticker. Their new license just came in the mail, but not the stickers yet. I'd wait another month (mid-Dec) before starting to worry.

    Am I reading it correctly that if you apply for stickers 1/1/19 or later you will get to use them until 1/1/23?

    Meaning if I buy a Prime now I should wait another 1.5 months to add an extra year to my carpool stickers eligibility?

    Yup - that's why I'm waiting until Jan. 1st to send in my application. This was verified by a call to the agency issuing the HOV stickers BTW.
