For a one-time payment of $750, you will receive an Empire Pass that is valid for life. With no expiration date, you purchase it once and enjoy parks forever. The NYS Dept. of Motor Vehicles will also issue a reprint of your driver’s license, learner’s permit or non-driver ID card with the maple leaf icon showing your lifetime membership to our NYS Parks.
Note: The online order confirmation is not acceptable for admission. Only the Empire Pass card is acceptable to waive the vehicle entrance fee. The Lifetime Empire Pass is not refundable and not transferrable. If it is lost, there is a fee to replace it.
