VEHICLE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS ON BASE
While the Navy no longer provides decals for vehicles authorized to access it's installations, personnel who regularly drive onto the base MUST register their vehicle at Pass & ID. This especially includes active duty, civilians, contractors and retirees. Commands need to ensure that newly arriving personnel register their vehicle upon reporting to NASWI. Additionally, all personnel should remain cognizant that it is easy to forget registering newly purchased vehicles. Individuals are encouraged to update their registration every two years to make sure security has current information on file. Security can impose a penalty for non-compliance. To register your vehicles, you must provide proof of base access eligibility, a valid driver's license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance.
