Each snowmobile operated in New York State must be registered unless it is used exclusively on the owner's private property or on private property that the snowmobile's owner has a contractual right to use.
Bring the completed application for snowmobile registration (form MV-82SN), completed Sales Tax (form DTF-802) or proof of exception or tax paid, proof of ownership, ID and bill of sale. ** Your trailer must be registered as well and a helmet must be worn.**
Any ATV driven anywhere in New York State, even solely on private property, must be registered (except those used only for agricultural purposes or private, not-for-hire snowplowing). ATV's can only be operated on public lands posted for ATV use and on private property only with the landowner's permission.
Bring the completed "Registration/Title Application" (form MV-82), completed Sales Tax (form DTF-802) or proof of exception or tax paid, proof of ownership (usually the mfr. statement of origin, bill of sale, or previous registration signed over to you) and ID. Insurance is required on ATV's unless driven solely on your own property. Be prepared to show proof of insurance upon request of a judge, police officer or a person claiming to have suffered injury or property damage.
