Hmmmm.... I did just this last August and the application got kicked back 3 months later stating that I needed permanent plates first. I got my plates in November and waited until Jan 1 and tried again. And my application got kicked back 3 months later stating that the check was more than 90 days old and to try again. WTF!?Confirming....you applied for CAV decal using the paper-temp plate and DMV accepted this and sent you decals BEFORE you received your permanent plates and formal registration info? I just posted this earlier, before discovering this thread:
Has anyone found any tricks to speed up the process of applying for a CAV decal?
- Has anyone successfully submitted an application with the TEMPORARY paper plate license?
- Any tips on getting a permanent license plate number to apply?The epitome of "bureaucracy" - I've had decals for 7 years, I finally buy a 100% electric, and now stuck for 2+ months unable to use the HOV lane? California should find a way to issue upon PURCHASE of a CAV - or....speed up the process and charge us 10x the cost to get the decal.Help save 1000's of us a billion hours of wasted time getting across the Bay Bridge! Or did I miss something in how to speed this up?
