Minnesota Statute 84.922 requires that all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) owned by Minnesota residents must be registered unless exempt. A public use ATV registration is valid for three years from the year of issuance.
Locations (see business hours)
Fees vary, depending on whether the registration is a transfer, renewal, duplicate, etc.
Cash, check, money orders, and credit or debit cards (Discover, Visa or MasterCard) are accepted at all locations.
Owner must appear in person
The owner of the ATV must appear in person if transferring ownership or new registration at one of the three locations with a valid ID. The owner must provide:
- Registration number (if issued)
- Serial number
- Engine size in HP or cubic centimeters (cc's)
- Weight of ATV
- Bill of Sale document (if change in ownership)
- Valid driver's license, state identification card or approved ID
When an ATV is first registered, the owner must present evidence of Minnesota sales tax paid or the sales tax will be due at time of registration.
A notice will be mailed to the owner. Please bring the notice when renewing your license. If the renewal notice was lost or not received, the owner must provide the registration number as well as driver's license, state identification card or approved ID.
