Special Vehicles in Massachusetts
You must register and title all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) and snowmobiles used on property other than your own through the Massachusetts Division of Environmental Law Enforcement. You'll need to pay all sales tax due before registration, but you can pay it online to save time and trouble.
Gather up the following before you head to the nearest Registration Office:
- Your receipt.
- The Bill of Sale.
- The Manufacturer's Certificate of Origin if the vehicle is new.
- The current title signed over to you if you bought used.
- A completed Registration and Titling Application (Form ELE 1).
- The appropriate fee.
Golf carts must also be registered in Massachusetts, through the same process listed above for ATVs and snowmobiles.
You'll need to pick up an RMV-3 form from your insurance agent to register your trailer; make sure he or she signs and stamps it before you leave the office. Then visit your local RMV office with the Manufacturer's Certificate of Origin (for new trailers) or the current title signed over to you, and the Bill of Sale.
Depending on the size of the trailer, you may only be required to only register it. The weight is determined by the manufacturer, so that number will appear on the previous title or the certificate of origin.
The state offers a schedule of fees for your information; trailers are listed toward the bottom.
