Utah ATV Laws Change

If you ride an ATV in Utah, but are not a Utah resident there is an important change taking effect to the Utah ATV Laws on January 1, 2020.

Utah will no longer offer reciprocity with ANY other states. This new change in the OHV law applies to all out of state off road vehicles including ATVs, OHVs, off-highway motorcycles and snowmobiles.  

Previously, Utah would allow out of state riders who were legally registered in their home state to also ride legally in Utah without also having to register in Utah, but that law is changing.

All out of state, off road riders in Utah will now be required to register their ATV/OHV vehicles in Utah in order to ride legally within Utah.

Out of state registration will cost $30 and will remain valid for 12 months from date of purchase. If you buy the permit online, there is an additional $5 charge.

If you’d rather buy in person, here is a list of vendors selling Utah out of state ATV/OHV registration:

If you intend to buy the registration in person, be sure to bring:

  • Proof of residency: driver’s license or other valid state ID
  • Proof of ownership: title, bill of sale or current registration

The new fees collected from this change in the Utah ATV laws are going to fund new trails, trail maintenance, trail operations, OHV education, OHV facility development and enforcement.
