How long does it take to get an E-ZPass?

In everyday situations, you receive a transponder a week after you have completed the application process. Other websites say that you will receive it from seven to ten days upon completing the registration process. After that, you can proceed with the installation and then wait for 24 hours until the device is activated.

However, it would be best if you acknowledge that due to the current coronavirus outbreak the nation and the world are going through, this may take more time. According to many websites, such as Orange County, you may have to wait up to thirty days for your transponder due to staff shortages and safety reasons.

So, in summary, if you completed the application process today, you would receive your transponder in a week or thirty days, depending on the state’s guidelines and rules regarding the Covid-19 pandemic.
