To ensure we’re doing our part to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we’re switching to an appointment-only model for all Greenlight Hubs. Going forward, drivers are required to schedule an appointment in advance if they want to visit a Greenlight Hub. Walk-ins are not permitted at this time.

To schedule an in-person appointment at your closest location, visit our Help Center.

You can remove them when you decide to go offline and save them for the next time. Pro tip: keep the paper it comes with to place your sticker on when not in use.
