According to California DMV, my brand new 2005 Insight CVT is not qualified for the HOV lane stickers because

2005 INSIGHT HYBRID - not qualified due to lack of compliance with ATPZEV emission standard.

Has anyone gotten these anyways? Whats up with this?

i'd say just send away for it, and if you get 'em are caught after the fact, just plead ignorance. i think you'll get 'em.

LITTLE STORY: when they FIRST formally announced this program, i sent away the request (crude form)... with no money.

then when the "official" form came out, i resent that one WITH the $8. i got my decals a few weeks later.

then about 3 weeks ago, i get a letter from the DMV regarding my initial request for the HOV decals. it was a notice telling me as soon as i send my $8, they'll send me my decals! (lol) well, i'm not gonna take advantage. but i think it's a clear indicator as to how chaotic things must be up there. TAKE ADVANTAGE! (ha)

thanks

I sent in the $8 anyways. If I get the stickers, great. If not it won't be the first $8 I thrown away.

CA Clear Air Stickers for 2006 work too!

I got my $8 and the form (got the form from Norm Reeves Honda when I bought the car!), but I had to wait until I got my license plates from the DMV before I could send it in.

I bought the car on Feb. 3, 2006, finally received the stickers on April 22nd, 2006. Will try out the car pool lane tomorrow!
