    ATVs and Snowmobiles

    Yes, you do have to register your ATV or snowmobile before you head in the back country to enjoy Colorado's great outdoors. In fact, all off-highway vehicles (OHVs) need registration: dirt bikes, three-wheelers, dune buggies, etc.

    The registration process, however, is a little different. Instead of registering through Colorado DMV, you register through Parks and Wildlife Registration Unit using a Registration Application (Form APRG09001) Once you've completed the form, you can return it to:

    • Parks and Wildlife Registration Unit
    • 13787 South Highway 85
    • Littleton, CO 80125

    You may also go to a State Park office or OHV dealer. You can see a complete list of OHV agents or snowmobile agents.

    Registration Fees

    OHV registration currently costs $25.25 and is valid until March 31st. Snowmobile registration currently costs $30.25 and is valid from October 1 to September 30. Partial year registrations cannot be prorated.

    Registration Renewal

    The easiest way to renew registration is online. All you need is the vehicle registration, pay the appropriate fees and print out a temporary permit.

    If you're more comfortable without a computer, you can always complete the registration renewal card and send it to the indicated address.


    Colorado does require you to register your trailer. To do this, you need a valid title on it. Some states don't title trailers, so if this is the case you'll want to go to your county office with documentation that you own the vehicle. A bill of sale works best, but you can always use a Statement of Trailer Ownership(Form DR 2374)

    You'll also want to have the following:

    • VIN Verification if you're coming from out-of-state.
    • Driver's license.
    • Proof of insurance for the vehicle pulling the trailer.

    If you were handy enough to build or assemble your own trailer, it still needs titling. To get your title and registration, you'll use the same procedure as a regular trailer, but you'll also have to complete a Statement of Assembly of Homemade Trailer and Assignment of ID Number (Form DR 2409) In addition, you'll have to provide a bill of sale for all materials used to put the trailer together, such as axles and wheels.

    Boats and Small Vessels

    There are quite a few people out there who say boats and trailers go hand in hand. Once you've titled and registered your trailer, you'll have to register your boat, too. See our boat registration page for more information.

    RVs and Campers

    The kings of mobile living still need titling and registration. Don't fret. It's not as complicated as it might sound, and we've put together a handy guide to registering RVs.

    Motorcycles and Mopeds

    Yes, you do need to register your motorcycle or moped before cruising the Colorado mountain roads. See our guide to registering motorcycles, mopeds and scooters.
