Over Sand Vehicles (O.S.V.)
O.S.V. Stickers are required year-round and trails are patrolled daily
2021 O.S.V. Stickers expire July 15, 2022
2022 O.S.V. Stickers expire June 30, 2023
When applying for an O.S.V. sticker, you are required to acknowledge that the O.S.V. has the required equipment inside the vehicle while driving over-sand. O.S.V. are subject to a spot-check inspection by Rangers while on the beach. Failure to comply with the Town of Orleans O.S.V. operations, rules, & regulations will result in O.S.V. violations. After three (3) violations, your sticker will be revoked for one (1) year beginning on the date of your last citation.
You are required to read, print, and store the O.S.V. and H.C.P user guides in your O.S.V. at all times. These documents have important information you are required to know before registering an O.S.V. You may print these documents below. You are also required to watch the O.S.V. and H.C.P. instructional videos prior to applying for a sticker.
By applying for an O.S.V. sticker, you acknowledge that your sticker does not guarantee you access to the over-sand trails during closures due to threatened species, inclement weather, erosion, capacity, or any closure implemented by the Town of Orleans Natural Resources Manager and/or his/her designee. Your O.S.V. sticker does not grant you access to park in the beach parking lots. The amount of time the O.S.V. trail is closed to protect threatened species varies each season, and the anticipated open date will change each season. There is no way for staff to pre-determine when O.S.V. access will re-open each season. We encourage you to sign up for updates (below) to be notified of any progression in the H.C.P. All O.S.V. Stickers are non-transferrable and non-refundable, so please read and review all the information below before applying.
2022 Stickers will go on sale online beginning April 11, 2022.
