In addition to the original fee increases, the bill directed the DMV to implement future fee increases when the California Consumer Price Index (CCPI), as calculated by the Department of Finance, showed increases in inflation. The CCPI measures inflation by tracking a number of common items purchased by consumers. The increases in the CCPI over the past five years triggered previous $1 increases on other vehicle code sections, but not until now has it affected the two, $3 OHV fees given to CHP from OHV identification (registration).
The increased Green/Red Sticker fees became effective on January 1, 2009. For more information, visit the California State Parks Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division website.
