    I know it's only been a little over 2 weeks since submitting the paperwork, but getting a bit antsy in the "slow" lanes.

    As I understand it, replacement decals for the expired green decals are red, and expire 1-1-2022. But if you apply for first-time decals now, you will get purple ones, which are good until 1-1-2023.

    Ah damn.. he mailed his app in late December. That may explain why he got his so early.

    I was tempted to do that also, but was afraid the bureaucracy would hose me and give me a red sticker because I applied in 2018.:cry:

    Hopefully, what happened to people who renewed their California driver's licenses late last year won't happen for the clean air decals. Due to complaints about delays, the DMV configured their online renewal system to allow renewals before the usual 90 days before expiration. It took people's payments, and happily provided a receipt. But people never got their licenses. When they took their receipt to a DMV office, no record of the renewal was found in the system, and those people were accused of using forged receipts. So people just paid again. Finally, the DMV discovered that while their front end Web system had been modified to accept the early renewals, the back end processing system hadn't, and it was simply silently discarding the "invalid" early renewals being passed to it from the front end. Thus, no record of the renewal. Now the DMV has instructed their staff to accept the receipts without an additional payment, refund double payments, and passed along a memo to state law enforcement agencies to take it easy on citing drivers for recently expired licenses.

    This is not a joke. I read about it in the Sacramento Bee newspaper and heard it on local TV news.

    Got notification they cashed my check about 4 days ago. When I checked, I saw the check had been stamped February 8. No sticker yet.

    I mailed the application in on the 1/1. I got my Magic stickers last weekend, call it too weeks before processing the check, another week to receive the stickers. I'm sure that a lot of people did the same to try and get the purple stickers.
