Off-Highway Vehicles (OHV) and Boating Registration

Reduced Vehicle License Taxes Coming for Some Off-Highway Vehicles

Effective September 24, 2022, registrations for primarily off-highway vehicles with a declared weight of 1,801–2,500 pounds and a valid off-highway vehicle decal will be assessed a vehicle license tax of $3 per year. 

Registrations for primarily off-highway vehicles with a declared weight of 1,801–2,500 pounds and a valid off-highway vehicle decal that are paid before September 24, 2022 will be assessed the full vehicle license tax.

This change doesn’t impact primarily on-highway vehicles, which will continue to be assessed the full vehicle license tax.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department has more information on off-highway vehicles and OHV rules and regulations.

Off-Highway Vehicle Decal Initial Registration

OHV decals are valid for one year from date of purchase. Before visiting an MVD or Authorized Third Party office, please complete the Off-Highway Vehicle Decal Application. The initial decal may be purchased at the same time your OHV is titled and registered. The fee for the decal is $25 per year.

You should always renew your OHV decal first when doing a renewal transaction with MVD if the OHV registration and decal expire at approximately the same time.
