Does anyone know how long it takes to receive the registration information for the Model 3? I would like to apply for the rebates and HOV stickers.

I didn't waste any time at all, soon as we got home from fremont delivery center I submitted all the paperwork to CVRP to apply for the rebate..don't forget the $500 from PG&E rebate too..PG&E didn't take that long to get..2 weeks I think.

Is it different from a regular dealer in regard to the plates?

I know this is more a California specific question but might apply to other states as well. I want one of the specialty environmental plates but would prefer to get them first shot and not have to go in and do it all over again at DMV.

The delay in registration must be a California or other state issue. In NY there are no "temporary" registration plates such as other states have. I do not know about Tesla (yet) but normally you leave the dealer with your plates on the car and registration document in hand. If the dealer doesn't do it for you, then he gives you the info and you go to a DMV office and pickup the plates then and there, and take them back to the dealer.

Why would California do that? That’s way too efficient. Just think of all the jobs at DMV that would be eliminated if we did it this way. Our governor wouldn’t allow such a policy to happen.
