I have one, but for Arizona. I have heard that winning the lotto in California may be easier than getting it street legal

In AZ, you need to have a horn, rearview mirror, lighted license plate bracket, and insurance.

Thanks, I see a trip to AZ in my future. You're right about getting a plate in CA, but if you have an out of state plate, they have to honor it.

Can you apply for a plate by mail in AZ or do they have to inspect the vehicle?

They do not have to inspect the vehicle, however, you will be required to sign stating that you will be installing the required equipment. Also, if you do not have paperwork that shows you paid AZ tax, they may hit you up for that in addition to your registration fees.

Don't get your hopes up. CA does not honor out of state street licensed UTVs.

Actually they don't have to honor it. Just like if you have a valid license to pull triples through Utah, does not mean you can here.

Highly doubt you will be able to get it signed off as street legal. DMV is really tough to change licensing through once it's been licensed a certain way. One of the requirements from the DMV to license a veh is a "license of origin". meaning something from the mfg saying they built it etc. I know it may seem like it most of the time, but the DMV is not dumb, if ur veh is licensed from the dealer as w/ a green sticker veh, you'll have the burden of proving otherwise.

Well, I guess if it was easy to do you'd see UTVs all over the streets of Pismo. Wishful thinking on my part.

How is it the guys that use UTVs for farming are allowed to drive on the street in CA?

Typically farming vehicles are "exempt" and can go down rural roads.

Actually if the regestration is out of state you would have to bring it down for vin instection to tranfer to AZ, then when you bring it back to CA... well good luck! i'm from sacamento and i'm trying to find anyway to make it "street legal". also i hear if you live within 9 mile of a golf course it might be able to pass. what doesn't allow it to pass is that in the reg. is says off-road. i'm kinda kick'n around the idea of building a rc51 powered fully tubed 4 seater chassis with teryx plastics on it, taking it to the DMV and telling them i build a custom car from "scatch" then they issue a vin and send you though an inspection and off you go. kinda of like would a custom chopper shop would do. you do you guys think?
