Off-Highway Vehicles (OHVs)
The use of off-highway vehicles (OHV) in North Dakota is growing for many residents and visitors. OHVs range from off-road motorcycles to ATVs and larger utility vehicles. OHVs that ride on public lands including trails, roads and ditches are required to be registered. Whether using an OHV for work or recreation, the proper operation and safe use of these vehicles is a necessity.

The registration of your snowmobile is an important part of the funding for the snowmobile trail system. All snowmobiles on the state trail system must be registered or have an out-of-state permit for those coming from out-of-state. Whether you snowmobile for recreation or work, the proper operation and safe use of snowmobiles is essential.
