Off-road vehicle registration endorsed in Nevada

CARSON CITY, Nev. ” A state Assembly panel voted Tuesday for a bill requiring owners of off-road vehicles, or ORVs, to register their rigs with the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles.

SB394, endorsed by the Assembly Transportation Committee, would mandate that ORVs, such as all-terrain vehicles, snowmobiles, dune buggies and all-terrain motorcycles, be registered at an annual cost of $20 to $30. A titling fee would run about $28.

Nearly $7 million could be generated over the next two years from the registration, titling and other fees for about 227,000 off-highway vehicles in Nevada, according to DMV figures.

The bill, proposed by Sen. Dean Rhoads, R-Tuscarora, would designate responsibility for title and registration processing to ORV dealers. Rhoads said the plan wouldn’t take effect until it can be adequately funded. He added that efforts are under way to find grants.
