If you operate or transport a snowmobile on public lands, roads, or trails, it must be registered as a recreational vehicle.
To register a snowmobile, visit any Utah Division of Motor Vehicles (UDMV) office where you will complete a registration application and pay the required registration fee. When you go, take the following documentation with you:
- Proof of ownership, such as a title or bill of sale, and...
- The tax certificate from the county assessor of the county where the snowmobile is taxed and...
- The current registration card (for renewals).
Snowmobile registration is valid for one year and expires on the last day of the month when the snowmobile was registered. If your snowmobile is currently registered and you wish to renew, you may do so online.
After receiving the appropriate documents and registration fee, the UDMV will issue two registration stickers and a registration card containing the vehicle number. The registration card must be carried on the vehicle and made available for inspection by law enforcement officers.
If a snowmobile is used only on a farm or ranch or for other agricultural purposes, it may be registered at a UDMV office as an implement of husbandry.
- The one-time registration fee is $10.00.
- The UDMV will issue an off-highway implement of husbandry sticker. The sticker must be affixed in a visible location on the left side of the vehicle.
- If you also operate the snowmobile on public property for recreational purposes, the snowmobile must be registered as a recreational vehicle.
Snowmobile operators who are not residents of Utah must purchase a non-resident permit for each snowmobile they bring into Utah.
