    Maybe they only go to the mail room to fetch mails for their department on 17 of each month. So now they are working on the mail they got on 1/17. On 2/17, they fetched the 2nd batch but they are put inside a box to wait until 1/17 box is done.

    Wow the longer processing wait times for just a few days of mailing time in January must mean a lot of cars were sold at end of year, Teslas and non-Teslas qualifying for the stickers.

    New S purchased Dec 2018
    Mailed CA HOV sticker application on 1/2/19
    Check cashed 2/20/19
    Finally received (ugly metallic purple) stickers 3/6/19*
    *(registration paperwork lists application as Received 2/22", meaning they are not deemed received until they actually process the application, even if sitting there for two months)

    I got rear ended today (the other driver fled - grr). There isn't much damage but I can feel small dents in the bumper. Contemplating replacing the bumper, but wondering if anyone had any luck transferring stickers on PPF to a new bumper. Waiting for new HOV stickers will be painful. I used PPF cut to size for the HOV stickers.

    What is the turn around time today for stickers? I assume it's faster than the new year rush.

    Thanks for the information.
    So I assume you just put the VIN on the form and left the license plate area blank?
