I have a question about atv registrations I know you do not need to register as long as it is going to be used only on your property does that mean only the address that is listed on the title or does that apply to any property you own.The atv would be trailered to the other property.

I am pretty sure it needs to be registered. it is the insurance. if you only ride your property you do not need insurance.

All ATV's in Pa are to be titled and registered by law......if you choose to only operate it on YOUR OWN property (not uncles, dads, friends, state owned or any other land that is not owned or leased by YOU) you can opt for the limited registration which is free...but you must still have a registration plate(there will be no expiration sticker). You do not need insurance if you have the limited registration

If you choose to operate it off of your property, you will need to have the open registration which costs $20 every 2 years. You only need insurance if you will be operating it off of your property


(btw...when I use caps...I am only doing it to emphasize those words...not to be smart

I can say I have saw a lot of people riding 4 wheelers in the coal hills and few registration plates.

Camp..to add one more thing...if your child is between the ages of 8-15, they must also have a valid atv safety certificate from either a DCNR qualified instructor or the ASI, in order to ride off of your property.

Pan, yep I know....people ride without proper registration...proper insurance and what not....my goal is to inform people and hopefully they will be a legal rider....riding not only with the proper paperwork...but also making sure they are riding where they have permission to

You are correct on the registration and I would also add that the DCNR plate stays with the ATV it was issued for. They are not transferable like vehicle plates.

When I bought my used Kawa, the owner couldn't find the plate, so I told him no plate, no deal. They did eventually find both the title and the plate, before money changed hands.

I have no insurance or renewable registration on mine, because it's only used at camp and rarely strays onto a neighbor's farmland a bit (with permission, of course).

No desire to ride it elsewhere or on ATV trails. Bought it for work and play at camp.

Did you pay taxes in NJ on it? If you did...you just have to provide proof of tax paid...if you didnt, then yes you will be responsible to pay PA sales tax on it.

Thats odd when I bought a used atv last feb.when we went to transfer the titleI got a new plate and the previous owner took the old one Inever heard of the plate has to stay with the atv.
