eligible vehicle list, single occupant carpool HOV lane sticker

This page last reviewed October 3, 2014


As of September 23, 2014, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has issued the 55,000 maximum green Clean Air Vehicle decals allowed by law.  Assembly Bill 2013, effective January 1, 2015, authorizes DMV to issue an additional 15,000 green decals, for a new maximum of 70,000.  Applications for green CAV decals will continue to be accepted at this time, however, decals cannot be issued until after January 1, 2015.

California law allows single-occupant use of High Occupancy Vehicle (HOVs) lanes by certain qualifying clean alternative fuel vehicles. A list of qualifying vehicles and frequently asked questions are provided below. Use of these lanes with a single occupant requires a Clean Air Vehicle Sticker issued by the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Currently, there are two types of stickers that are being distributed by the DMV.

white decalWhite Clean Air Vehicle decals are available to an unlimited number of qualifying Federal Inherently Low Emission Vehicles (ILEVs). Cars that meet these requirements are typically certified pure zero emission vehicles (100% battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell) and compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles. Per AB 266, the expiration date for the white stickers has been extended to January 1, 2019.

Green DecalGreen Clean Air Vehicle decals were originally available to the first 40,000 applicants that purchased or leased cars meeting California's transitional zero emission vehicles (TZEV) requirement, also known as the enhanced advanced technology partial zero emission vehicle (AT PZEV)* requirement. Per SB 286, the expiration date for the green decals has been extended to January 1, 2019. Per budget trailer bill, SB 853 (Statutes 2014, chapter 27), the green decal limit was increased by 15,000 to 55,000 decals effective July 1, 2014. Now, per AB 2013, effective January 1, 2015, an additional 15,000 decals will be available for a new maximum of 70,000. 

yellow decalYellow Clean Air Vehicle decals for hybrids are no longer valid - the program ended on 7/1/2011. Please note that these vehicles do not qualify for any other type of decals.

Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to your questions regarding eligibility for single occupancy HOV lane access can be found here. For more detailed information regarding the process and limitations of using Clean Air Vehicle Decals, visit the Department of Motor Vehicles website.

 
yellow decal Yellow Clean Air Vehicle Decals: Hybrid Vehicles

Under AB 2628, "Yellow Stickers" were issued to early models of qualifying hybrid vehicles allowing single occupant access to HOV/carpool lanes. These stickers were limited to the first 85,000 applicants. As of July 1, 2011, the program ended and Yellow Clean Air Vehicle stickers are no longer valid. HOV lane use by a Yellow Sticker vehicle, without the minimum required passengers, will subject the driver to a citation. Please note that these vehicles do not qualify for any other type of Clean Air Vehicle Sticker or decal.

 

Why did yellow hybrid vehicle stickers expire?
The California legislature limited the time of this early hybrid vehicle program to help promote and encourage the development of newer plug-in hybrid and other zero emissions technologies.

 
white decal White Clean Air Vehicle Decals: Zero Emission and CNG Vehicles
White Clean Air Vehicle Stickers are available to an unlimited number of qualifying Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEVs) and allow single-occupant access to California HOV / Carpool lanes. Cars that meet these requirements are typically 100% battery electric or hydrogen (H2) fuel cell vehicles. The white sticker program also includes certain alternative-fueled vehicles, such as those operating on compressed natural gas (CNG) and certified to California's most stringent emission standards, that also meet the United States Inherently Low Emission Vehicle or ILEV standard. Please see the above list for specific vehicles. Per AB 266, the expiration date for the white stickers has been extended to January 1, 2019.
 

What does the new legislation that extended the program mean when it says “ or until federal authorization expires”?
States wishing to allow certain vehicles with a single occupant access to HOV lanes must have federal authorization to do this. To date, California has historically received this authority through the different federal transportation bills.

Do neighborhood electric vehicles qualify?
"Neighborhood" electric vehicles such as the GEM EV and the Think! Neighbor are ZEVs certified to the US DOT safety standards that only allow their use on roads with posted speed limits of 35 MPH or less. As such they cannot be issued the California HOV lane access sticker. These vehicles are not permitted to be used on ANY road or freeway with posted speed limits above 35 MPH REGARDLESS of the speed at which traffic may actually be operating.

How do I transfer a Clean Air Vehicle decal to my name or get a replacement sticker?
All decals remain with the vehicle they were originally issued to and cannot be transferred to any other vehicle. If you purchase a vehicle that has a decal, you may transfer the decal to your name. Refer to Frequently Asked Questions on the Department of Motor Vehicles website for more information.

 
yellow decal Green Clean Air Vehicle Decals: Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles

Green Clean Air Decals were originally available to the first 40,000 applicants that purchased or leased cars meeting California's transitional zero emission vehicles (TZEV) requirement, also known as the enhanced advanced technology partial zero emission vehicle (AT PZEV)* requirement. Per SB 286, the expiration date for the green decals has been extended to January 1, 2019. Per budget trailer bill, SB 853 (Statutes 2014, chapter 27), the green decal limit was increased by 15,000 to 55,000 decals effective July 1, 2014. Now, per AB 2013, effective January 1, 2015, an additional 15,000 decals will be available for a new maximum of 70,000. 

What models will qualify?
Qualifying vehicles will be posted to this web page. In general, vehicles that meet the Transitional Zero Emission Vehicle or TZEV requirement qualfity. These can include plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and hydrogen internal combustion engine (hydrogen ICE) vehicles. In order to be certified as an TZEV, PHEVs and hydrogen ICE vehicles must:

  • Meet California's most stringent tailpipe emission standard
  • Have zero evaporative emissions
  • Have a 15 yr/150K mile warranty on the emissions system and;
  • Have a 10 yr/150K warranty on the zero emission energy storage system.

Not all PHEV and hydrogen ICE vehicles will meet these requirements.

What does the new legislation that extended the program mean when it says “ or until federal authorization expires”?
States wishing to allow certain vehicles with a single occupant access to HOV lanes must have federal authorization to do this. To date, California has historically received this authority through the different federal transportation bills.
