You must have access to a Arizona Physical address. If you have that Contact Sierra Title in PHx. Just send them an email to start process. They do it all.

Where do you live? AZ reciprocates with NM, UT, CO and TX. If it can be plated in your state you are good if not you can get annual registrations. There is always an out of state registration anywhere from $15 to $40 annualy.

I know here in AZ you can get an out of state registration, but I believe that is for off road only. I would think if you are registered street legal in your state, you should be good here, as long as you have the off road registration from this state as well. Call the AZ DMV and ask them. They’ve been really good at answering my questions and getting be both my on/off road plates.

The laws are really really grey in NM. I have both tags off-road and on road with plates. Some officers say it’s fine some officers say it’s not. Law says certain counties are ok some are not. So where I stand is I was able to get a plate and registration in a county that doesn’t allow it. But have been seen by cops riding on the street with no issues.

Thanks for the imput all, I already have the $30 out of state annual tag for Arizona from the parks district.. the state MVD web site refers to a out of state on-road registration and a decal application affdvied form.. I will call and see what is required and keep posted.. if its anything like the DMV in California it is best to know the process and details of what to ask before you go in. I read somewhere on their site starting 2020 they don't issue a MC plate for this just different color sticker.. yet I have seen Krx's with the hard plate.. IDK maybe some one here does..

I know for a fact there are AZ rides (Grand Canyon/Parashant National Monument, many looong loops) that specifically say you must have AZ Plates and AZ OHV sticker. Also, you may be able to ride on authorized Utah roads with AZ plates, but to go off road you must have a Utah OHV sticker.

I was at the bar10 Grand Canyon and one of the look outs required driving past the ranger station.. we were told that a street lic was required on one of the roads near it as well as a non resident ohv permit decal.. hard to believe if you saw the road.

AZ did away with the “MC” plate, and we now have just regular plates, but it’s still registered as a motorcycle. I have 2 stickers on my plate, the registration sticker, and a OHV sticker. (Both need to be renewed yearly)

Interesting. I was researching the possibility of riding the Rimrocker trail from Montrose CO to Moab. No real issues on designated roads on the trail in CO (with CO off road sticker) because of county permissions. Utah rules said no Utah OHV sticker needed on off road trails if street licensed. Not street licensed and Utah sticker needed to even take it off the trailer. Annnnnd.....if street licensed, you had better be a resident of the state it is licensed in (with ID) or potential impoundment and, or, ticket. So, if I formed a legal Utah Corp, had a UTV legally registered as a Utah street legal company vehicle, I couldn't drive it in Utah with an out of state DL. Sounds like something out of a Monty Python skit it is so absurd. The ministry of absurd UTV rules. :unsure:

I had a South Dakota plate on my General, and was street legal in any state that allows plated UTV's on their roads. However, an OHV sticker was still required in SD and Utah, even with the license plate. Wyoming I was fine without the OHV sticker. Here in communist Colorado, OHV's are not allowed on streets. No such thing as street legal here. I have heard that Utah has been playing around with their rules about what's street legal now, so who knows?

There are exceptions in the peoples socialist paradise of Colorado Comrade! Rejoice in the fact that certain Counties and Cities (mostly Rural and Western Slope) do allow "some" street usage under some conditions! Last I checked, the pavement sections of the Rim Rocker trail were open to UTVs Stickered and equipped to the crossed counties standards (insured, stock emissions, windshield/eye protection, muffler/spark arrester etc. and available on the Rim Rocker Site). IIRC, certain pass thru sections in Lake City, Pitkin, and Silverton were also open with similar requirements. Sadly, the aforementioned exceptions are done by local decree and are subject to change without notice. It is your responsibility to know what is open and what is not. Plan accordingly or be very good friends with the local Sheriff Deputies :).

In Missouri here, paying attention to this for sure. Would like to find a way to a get street legal license in another state. Here they do not consider OHVs in a category that can be registered, only a Certificate of Origin. Much like owning a lawnmower. For the upcoming Glamis trip I purchased a CA OHV sticker (no on road needed), CO and Utah are trickier as you need to be on roads. I'll pursue a NM On Road sticker and street legal kit for use in Utah, in CO it will be a CO sticker and sticking to OHV designated roads. It will be a permit fest to say the least.

LOL!
I knew about Lake City, Silverton and Pitkin, but I hate to even mention them because I don't want people to get the wrong idea that a license plate on their OHV will allow them to ride Colorado roads. However, in Silverton, if you ride across the highway to get to the gas station, you can be pulled over and written up for riding on a state highway. This can and does happen on a fairly regular basis from what I've been told.

It's travel at on public streets at your own peril in CO. The route thru Silverton, and Lake City is very specific. A proper scolding and papers check, and not a ticket often the result for those that make an error. There has been a drastic pick up in UTV/MC/ATV law enforcement contacts in Hinsdale County in the last year from what I hear (and I do hear). A lot of the outcome depends on your attitude to the whole thing.

Seriously thinking about doing a quick Rim Rocker "Dash" from Montrose to the Utah/CO border and back as a very long day trip this summer while I still can. Second alternative is to just do a stage at a time, but the stages don't break up real well. Was going to do it in the Pioneer with some other family members and their Pioneers on a leisurely basis all the way to Moab, but Utah is too sketchy and conflicting rules wise.

I have a buddy who has made the ride all the way to Moab a couple of years ago, and another who wants to do it. Problem is, my wife would want to make the ride as well, and not just drive the truck/trailer to Moab and wait for me to show up. :D
