Making your utv street legal

Hi everybody im in kansas and kansas will not let you make a utv sreet legal so here is what i did to get mine steet legal. I found a guy in south dakota that registers rvs after talking to the south dakota tag department in hanson county. Wich they gave me his #. I sent him all my paperwork and casier checks so he gould get me a onroad title and tag (soutdakota atv are sreet legal) he then sent me back a tag and registration and will send me the title in 3 weeks when southdakota sends it to him. Now that my utv has a onroad title its federal law that no state can denie you when you reregister it in you home state.i have a friend here where i live and he is head of the higway patrol here in kansas. I told him what i had done and he wasent real happy that i figured out the loopholes. He also told me what i had done was 100% correct and legal :d

A Few More Details

$900 is well worth getting the Commander street legal. Sounds like you get a Title from SD then go to the tag office (home state) with your out of state title, safety inspection and apply for a new title and tag in your home state (Missouri).

You have done this in Kansas, $900 is enough that I don't want to make bad assumptions.

Did you talk with anyone (HP) before doing this, can you give the contact information for the person in SD. Thanks for the post, it gives me some hope of making this happen, several other threads on this forum about the same thing.

I don't want to flood your phone so if you could give me a time to call, I'd like to talk to you. I've been looking into this to get it done.

Let me know when I can call.

Thanks,

Mark

Wow great leg work, thank you so much for sharing that info. I am in California and I would like to do the same thing, not so much to drive on the road but to get from trail to trail in some of the areas I ride.

So does anyone know if any states around California will give UTV's a licence? Or if it would possible to get the transfer to California due to smog requirements.

Arizona is super easy... Quads running all over the place with plates...

needs to have a headlight, taillight, horn, mirror and lighted plate for a standard plate. They dont even inspect the vehicle...but it your responsibility to make sure its legal if your pulled over.
