Some of you know that due to some hard word by ARMCA D23 in our state last year that legislation was passed to make it easier to register off-highway motorcycles (dirtbikes) for highway use. The State was given some time to get their ducks in a row and figure out how to process the applications. Now, as of January 15th, the DMV should know how to do this if you bring in the right information. The state has the following two helpful documents online:
Frequently asked questions: https://dps.mn.gov/divisions/dvs/forms-documents/Documents/MotorVehicle-Off-Highway-Motorcycle-FAQs.pdf
Print and fill out this form: https://dps.mn.gov/divisions/dvs/forms-documents/Documents/MV-certification-checklist-off-road-motorcycles.pdf
It is important to note that you don’t get a title for your bike with this process. Just a plate and special plate sticker.
Some of you have written in saying how easy the process was. This is very good to hear! Hopefully this means more riders enjoying the trails in Minnesota this year.
