If you want to operate your OHV on paved or maintained roads, you must “register” your OHV to be “street legal.”
- The OHV must be designed by the manufacturer primarily for travel over unimproved terrain and have an unladen weight of 1,800 pounds or less.
- The OHV must display the Arizona OHV decal.
- You must affirm that your vehicle is equipped for highway use.
- Registered vehicles must comply with mandatory insurance requirements.
- Vehicle emissions testing requirements may apply.
Depending on how you plan to operate your OHV in Arizona, two registration options are available.
- Option 1: If you operate primarily off-highway, your vehicle is eligible for a waiver of the registration fee and a reduced Vehicle License Tax of $3.00 (normally higher). The OHV owner may request a free motor vehicle registration when paying for the OHV decal.
- Option 2: If you operate primarily on improved roads and highways (such as city driving), you are required to register your vehicle through the standard vehicle registration process, including payment of all fees.
