- In-State Residents
All OHVs must display a current OHV registration sticker when operated or transported on public lands or roads. Off-highway motorcycles may be registered as street legal if they are safety inspected and insured. OHV registrations expire annually on the last day of the month the OHV was purchased.
Obtain registration from the Utah Division of Motor Vehicles.
Your OHV registration fees go directly back into the sport. Of the $21 collected from each registration, $13.50 is dedicated to the improvement of summer and winter OHV opportunities; $2 is used for safety and responsible riding education; $2.50 goes to the Division of Motor Vehicles; $1.50 to school trust lands; $1 goes to electronic transaction fees; and $.50 goes to fund search and rescue efforts.
Registration decals must be mounted in a visible location as follows:
Motorcycles - on each fork
Snowmobiles - on both sides of the hood, pan or tunnel
All other off-highway vehicles - On the front and rear of the vehicle
Owners of OHVs used only for agricultural purposes may apply for an "implement of husbandry" sticker instead of registration decals. However, if the machine is used for recreation on public lands or roads, it must also be registered for that purpose.
- Out-of-state Residents
Owners of ATVs, off-highway motorcycles or snowmobiles, brought into Utah by non-residents, must obtain a non-resident permit for their machine. Some states offer reciprocity, meaning there is a mutual agreement between states not to charge non-residents fees.
To obtain a non-resident permit, you must provide proof of out-of-state residency and that the OHV is not owned by a Utah resident. The cost for a 12-month permit is $30. Revenues generated from OHV user fees are dedicated to construction, improvement, operation and maintenance of OHV trails throughout Utah.
Non-resident OHV Permits are available online or in person at authorized vendor locations throughout Utah and at a few locations in surrounding states. When applying in person, please bring the following:
- Proof of residency: driver's license or other state issued identification.
- Proof of ownership: title or current registration
- $30 for each machine
Non-resident permits can also be obtained by mail by printing the forms below and mailing them with payment to the OHV Education office.

- Commercial Dealer Demonstration Pass
I am a commercial dealer and want to purchase the Cmmercial Dealer Demonstration Pass for $200. This permit entitles the dealer with one boat or OHV, trailer and towing vehicle and an additional vehicle with the potential purchasers, admittance to all Utah State Parks boating and OHV facilities. The permit does not include the $2 Davis County Causeway fee. This pass is good for commercial demonstration use only, and is non-transferable. The Commercial Dealer Pass is good for one year from the month purchased. A valid dealer registration is required to purchase the pass.
