Following my time with the Interpretation Division, I was assigned to the Off-Road Vehicle (ORV) Permit Office for the remainder of my work week. The ORV Permit Office is a major component of park operations here at Cape Hatteras. This office has been created over the last two years in order to issue permits for beach-driving inside the park. Visitors who are interested in obtaining an ORV Permit are directed into this office, where they can purchase a Weekly or Annual beach-driving permit. Before purchasing a permit, visitors are required to present their Vehicle Registration and Drivers License to the ORV Rangers. Then, they are instructed to fill-out the necessary paperwork and they are shown a 7 minute film that outlines the rules and regulations of beach-driving.
