Mandatory Registration for Snowmobiles Now Handled by BMV

Owners of snowmobiles and other recreational outdoor vehicles will now have to visit the Bureau of Motor Vehicles for mandatory registration, instead of the Department of Natural Resources as was required in the past. The registration switched over on Jan. 1 to the BMV, requiring vehicle owners to register every three years for $30.

Registration may be done online at or in person at a BMV branch. Questions about the process should be directed to the BMV at 1-888-692-6841.
