We cover how to register your car, boat, RV or motorhome, or motorcycle in other sections on this site. We even have a section devoted to registering your custom-built car. But the Washington, D.C., Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) requires you to register some other types of vehicles, too. Here we tell you how.
The DMV does not require you to title or register all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) or snowmobiles, because the District of Columbia doesn't have any off-road areas for these types of activities, and these vehicles aren't allowed on the roads and highways of the district.
To title and register your trailer, you should follow normal car titling and registration procedures. However, you will have to pay a different fee based on the weight of your trailer. To check how much your registration and title will cost, see the DMV's fee list.
To register a travel trailer, see our resource page for RVs and motorhomes.
You need to register and title these two-wheeled vehicles by following normal motorcycle registration procedures. Costs vary depending on the type of motorized vehicle. To check how much your registration and title will cost, see the DMV's fee list.
