NJ ATV Registration

Recommended Posts

It seems like NJ is now registering ATV's.

Is this new, I looked into this a while ago and the website said they did not register ATV's?

has anyone done it?

Here is the website.

http://www.state.nj.us/mvc/Vehicle/Snowmobiles.htm

And the text

Proof of ownership

If you purchased it from a dealership, provide an invoice with the date of purchase, make, model, year, serial number and the dealer's "Sales Tax Satisfied" stamp

If you purchased the vehicle from a private owner, provide the seller's registration that indicates the vehicle was sold and a notarized letter that includes:

Name of buyer

Date of sale

Make, model, year, serial number and purchase price

You will need to fill out sales tax information at MVC and will receive a "Sales Tax Satisfied" stamp upon completion.

The registration expiration date for all snowmobiles and ATV registrations is September 30th.

Use of vehicles in state parks

Properly registered snowmobiles are permitted in some areas of High Point, Wawayanda, Ringwood State Parks and the Stokes and Worthington State Forests in North Jersey. You can check with the park superintendent in advance for more details.

Unregistered ATVs are prohibited in all New Jersey State Parks and Forests – no exceptions.

Yes, you have been able to register them for years. I'm not sure why since even if they are registered, there's no where to ride them.

All of mine are registered basically so if I am stopped its less of a fine and hopefully no impoundment. They are insured as well. I love it though the state atv handbook is full of contradictions.

Does this mean that atv's also have to be insured? When I registered mine last year at DMV I had an insurance card with me. I recently got my registration renewal form in the mail as well as my insurance renewal notice. I'd like to just renew the registration which cost only $17. I'd prefer not to renew the insurance as that costs $124, but on the registration renewal form it asks for insurance policy information. I suspect DMV wants me to include a copy of a current insurance card. Just seems like such a waste of $124.

the reason ATV's can be reg and insured is so farmers that have ATV's as a utility vehicle can cross state roads etc.

It seems that NJ just learned that they have a cash cow for them selves and for their insurance company buddies. Just like NY. But get stopped with out it and it is like driving a car with out insurance and goes on your licence... it is a SCAM of the largest proportions. I hope you guys in NJ do something about it. For the guys here are basically to dam lazy to get off their duff and fight it..
