Owners of any off-highway vehicles (ATV or UTV), off-highway motorcycles or snowmobiles brought into Utah by non-residents, must obtain a non-resident permit for their machine in order to operate on public land. To obtain a non-resident OHV permit, you must provide proof of out-of-state residency and that the OHV is not owned by a Utah resident.
The non-resident OHV permit cost is $30 and is good for 12 months from the time of purchase. Beginning January, 2023, permits must be purchased online.
Funds received from non-resident OHV permits go directly back into Utah’s OHV recreational sport. The permit funds are directed toward trail construction, trail improvements, trail maintenance, OHV education, OHV facility development, and enforcement.
**When you purchase a non-resident OHV permit, you will be emailed a receipt of purchase and a temporary permit. Most people can expect to receive their permanent permit in the mail within about two weeks. If you live in Canada, your non-resident permit will take longer to arrive.**
New Adult Education Requirements
Beginning Jan. 1, 2023, Utah will require all OHV operators to complete the Utah Off-Highway Vehicle Education Course. Operators under the age of 18 shall possess a youth OHV education certificate in order to operate an OHV on public land, road or trail. Operators 18 years of age or older may operate an OHV if they possess an approved adult OHV education certificate. To take the test, click here.
