ATV Registration in PA
We specialize in PA ATV Registration at 309 Auto Tags and are careful to guide you in the appropriate direction taking your situation into account. There are 2 types of PA ATV Registration and the type depends on where you plan to operate your ATV.
General ATV Registration – Permits the ATV to be driven away from owner’s private property. The registration fee is $20 for two years. Owners are provided with a metal registration license plate, an expiration sticker, and a Certificate of Registration wallet card.
Limited PA ATV Registration – This registration is for owners to operate their ATV exclusively within the boundaries of their property. There is no charge and the registration never expires. Owners are provided with a metal registration license plate and card but no expiration sticker.
For reference, you do not need a PA ATV Registration to operate:
- ATVs used primarily for agriculture and general business operations
- A different owner’s validly registered, out-of-state covered ATV that recognizes PA registration
- Government or municipality-owned ATVs
- ATVs whose owner possesses a dealer registration certificate and uses the ATV unit only for the purposes of his (the dealer’s) business
