Vehicle Registration Policy

The Department of the Army no longer requires motor vehicle registration and the display of a vehicle decal for access to installations.  However, ALL personnel entering installations will still require personal identification that authorizes access (DoD photo ID).  All privately owned vehicles must continue to be licensed, registered, inspected and insured in accordance with state and local laws. Each service in DoD is taking or has already adopted this policy change.

Visitors without proper DoD identification will continue to report to the Visitor Control Center at Bolio Gate for identity verification and vehicle passes.

PARKING DECALS: parking decals for POM/DLIFLC will continue to be issued at the Bolio Visitor Control Center.

For questions you may call 831-242-7733/7731.
