Base Regulations

Beginning July 1, 2013, Pass and ID will no longer issue vehicle decals; however, you will still need to register your vehicle with them in order to drive it on base.

All E-3 and below must receive financial counseling prior to purchasing a vehicle per NASWHIDBEYINST 5801.1a. 

Traffic --The traffic laws of the State of Washington are strictly enforced on all portions of Naval Air Station Whidbey Island. Speed limits are enforced by radar. Seatbelts are required to be worn while aboard the Station.  See below for child safety seat and cell phone laws.

Motorcycles --Motorcyclists are required to wear helmets with eye protection, gloves, long trousers/shirts, and hard-soled shoes or boots. A 24-hour safety course is required before registering your motorcycle at Pass and ID.  Reflective yellow or orange vest with 1 1/2 inch wide vertical or horizontal retro-reflective strips front and back is required while on base.  Daytime headlight is required.

Bicycles -- Bicyclists are now required to wear reflective vests and helmets approved by ANSI or Snell while riding on government streets and roadways.

Accidents -- Report all traffic accidents and remain at the scene until police arrive to investigate. If there is an injury, death or $500 worth of damage to any person's property, make a full written report of the accident within 24 hours. Be sure to contact your insurance company as well.

Photography -- Cameras may be brought into the housing areas on base and retained in quarters without a camera pass. However, a camera pass is required before a camera can be taken into an official building or controlled area, especially the flight line. Contact the base public affairs office for further guidance at 360-257-2286.
