The annual Discover Pass for state parks and recreation lands is now available through the state Department of Licensing.

The agency started mailing notices in early September to owners of vehicle license tabs set to expire on or after Oct. 1.

Motorists can also purchase the Discover Pass at vehicle licensing offices or online as part of the registration renewal process. Purchasing the pass through the Department of Licensing does not have dealer or transaction fees attached.

People buying the pass through the Department of Licensing should receive the Discover Pass in the mail from the state Department of Fish and Wildlife within 10 days of renewal and purchase.

Officials started requiring the $30 annual pass or $10 day-use pass to park vehicles at recreation lands statewide July 1. The state started selling the passes in June.

Revenue from pass sales is divided among the state land-management agencies: 84 percent to the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission, 8 percent to the Department of Fish and Wildlife, and 8 percent to the Department of Natural Resources.
