    In West Virginia, regular passenger vehicles and motorcycles aren't the only vehicles you need to title and register. Don't forget your ATVs, snowmobiles, and trailers!

    Note: When you title and register any of these, you'll follow the same process as you would if you were titling and registering any other vehicle. You can use the same forms available for these processes, or you can let your local DMV Regional Office handle it all for you when you're ready.

    All-Terrain Vehicles

    To title an ATV in West Virginia, you'll need:

    • 5% of the purchase price.
    • The Manufacturer's Statement of Origin, or a notarized Bill of Sale.
    • $10 title fee ($5 extra if there's a lien on the ATV).

    Once you're done with all the technical stuff, check out our Fun with ATVs to get you started.

    Snowmobiles

    WV lets you either title or register your snowmobile―or both.

    To title your snowmobile, you'll need to take to your local DMV Regional Office:

    • 5% of the purchase price.
    • The Manufacturer's Statement of Origin, or a notarized Bill of Sale.
    • $10 title fee ($5 extra if there's a lien on the snowmobile).

    If you choose to register your snowmobile in WV, follow the same process as you would if you were registering a regular passenger vehicle.

    Trailers

    You must title and register your utility trailer in West Virginia.

    When you're ready to title the trailer, take to your local DMV Regional Office:

    • 5% of the purchase price.
    • The Manufacturer's Statement of Origin, or a notarized Bill of Sale.
    • $10 title fee ($5 extra if there's a lien on the trailer).

    Registering a WV utility trailer is a bit different than registering a vehicle.

    If the trailer is more than 2,000 pounds, registration is $50 and you'll get a license plate that is renewed every 3 years.
