How to obtain an ORV permit

A valid registration is required in  order to purchase an OVR Sticker (no dealer, farm, or repair plates).

Proof of residency is required in order to obtain a Barnstable ORV sticker. Residency can be proven by:

  1. Tax bill
  2. Minimum one year property lease
  3. Vehicle registration with a street address
    (PO Box is not sufficient)
  4. Other legal documents such as a deed or will (this does not include utility bills, excise tax bills, etc.)
  5. College students may provide a tuition bill with a Barnstable address.

Barnstable residents wishing to obtain an ORV sticker must have their vehicle registered in their name (or the name of a person residing at the same address) unless:

  1.  They have written permission to use a company vehicle.
  2. Proof of ownership of the company on the vehicle registration.
  3. A minimum one year vehicle lease agreement.

Sticker replacement is $1.00 providing:

  1. The old sticker is returned or,
  2. There is documented proof (approved by the Park Manager) that the old sticker was destroyed.

All ORV stickers are not valid unless they are permanently affixed to the vehicle and the license plate number on the vehicle matches the sticker (except for authorized laminated stickers). The entire protective sheet must be removed from the adhering side of the sticker and the sticker must be adhered to the window of the vehicle.  Proper placement of the sticker is inside on the driver's side windshield.

The ORV sticker does not entitle the holder to park in the beach parking lot.

A separate resident parking sticker is required. For Barnstable residents, the parking sticker can be obtained through the Barnstable Recreation Department.

The Town of Sandwich Parking sticker, which is honored at Sandy Neck Beach Park, can be obtained through the Town of Sandwich.
