    So you just bought an ATV or SXS and how you are heading to the trail to go riding. Just don't forget to head over to your states appointed registration office first as registration may be required in-order to operate an ATV or Side by Side in your state.

    Most states require that owners title and register their power-sport vehicles. Here is some basic information on that requirement. Please check with your state's DMV or appointed office for exact requirements. Also some states do not require a title or registration.

    Normally only basic information is needed to register you power-sports vehicle. Here is a list of some items you may be required to have:
    - The title or manufacturer's statement of origin signed over to you.
    - Your states application for a title.
    - The bill of sale for that vehicle.
    - The (VIN) vehicle identification number.
    - State application fee.
    Some states require you to also have:
    - Proof of liability insurance.
    - A lean release
    Insure you check with your state for exact registration requirements before hand.

    Also some states do not require owners to register there ATV or Side by Side. Other states offer exempt statuses when the operation of said vehicle meet state requirements such as:
    - ATVs used exclusively for agricultural or business purposes.
    - ATVs owned by nonresidents with valid titling and registration in there home state.
    - ATVs use only in connection with an ATV dealers business.
    Of course, each state has there own unique exemptions. Please check each states appointed office for more info.
