Maryland Department Offers Online Licensing Services in Spanish

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources announces its online COMPASS portal is now available in Spanish.

The new COMPASS portal will provide Spanish speakers access to the department’s catalog of recreational licenses, permits and stamps, and other products and services.

A button at the top of each page within COMPASS allows visitors to toggle between the “English version” and the “versión en español.”

This outreach underscores the department’s commitment to providing all customers access to Maryland’s recreational opportunities. In the past several years, the department has expanded its outreach to Maryland’s Latino community including the yearly Es Mi Parque programs in Maryland State Parks throughout the summer months, and recruiting additional bilingual staff.

Becoming a COMPASS customer is quick and easy. The department also encourages first-time users to use its tutorial to help obtain a DNRid Card for accurate identification at any sports license agent or DNR Service Center.
