What is COMPASS?
!
In order to protect public health and safety and to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus, all DNR Licensing and Registration Centers are now closed under the current State of Emergency. Governor Hogan has issued an executive order related to licenses, permits, registrations, and other authorizations that may be expiring or up for renewal during the state of emergency. The executive order immediately grants a grace period of 30 days after the date of termination of the state of emergency. This includes items normally processed at our MD Department of Natural Resources Licensing Service Centers. Our online COMPASS portal provides 24/7 self service access to our entire product catalog of recreational licenses, permits, and stamps; off-road vehicle registrations; magazine subscriptions; and donation options in support of your favorite Maryland Department of Natural Resources programs. Customers are encouraged to check our website, or contact us at customerservice.dnr@maryland
