All OSV permits purchased online will be available for pick-up at the gatehouses on Norton Point Beach or Mytoi, during open hours.

The Vineyard Haven office is temporarily unavailable to visitors. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

When picking up your stickers, please be sure to bring your e-mail confirmation and oversand vehicle with you. The stickers will be affixed to your vehicle at that time. Vehicles not bearing both stickers (front and back bumper on the same vehicle) are invalid. Replacements for lost and misplaced stickers will not be issued. If you decide to change vehicles (i.e. you’ve sold the vehicle, the vehicle is in the shop, etc.) please remember to remove both stickers and bring them with you to request a re-issue. Even if the permits are damaged or torn up into small pieces, that’s okay – we just need physical evidence that they are no longer in use!

OSV Access

Your OSV permit does not guarantee access. Access for Oversand Vehicles is limited to nesting shorebird activity and conditions of the beach itself including trail flooding, inundation and erosion. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for regular beach updates. We appreciate your membership and helping us to protect this precious resource.

For rules & regulations, driving tips, and other FAQs, please review the Oversand Vehicle Driving Guide.
