Default Can I use an SMV sign??????

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well I am not sure where to ask this so I guess it goes here. Here is the deal. I live in Ohio and I bought a Teryx Memorial Day weekend. I went to the BMV this morning to get the state sticker so I can ride on the edge of the road. Well they weren't sure how to handle this situation since there is no title and these have a certificate of ownership. They call some other division and they tell them that UTV's can't get the state sticker and that it CAN'T be driven on the road. So now what does a guy do if he wants to ride on state ground? Can I use an SMV sign and be legal? I was told by 2 Ohio State Patrolman that I could use an SMV sign but we have been having problems with our local Sheriff's Dept. and them telling us we can't drive on or cross the road with ATV's even though we have the state stickers. Thanks for any and ALL input.

Wait, I am confused, why do you not have a title on your Teryx? I have a title just as if it were a car or truck?

Being that I do not know your local laws, I cannot comment, but hopefully, someone will be able to help you out. Actually I have a couple people on my other site that have Rhinos and live in Ohio, I will point them to this topic.

Odd. I also do not have a title with mine. Bought in NC, no title issued or needed. I have a title on the 16' trailer I had to buy to haul it around, but not for the Teryx itself. Odd...

Friend of mine works at the BMV in Indiana, she states that if you paid taxes on your vehicle purchase, the state must title the vehicle. She said this is true in all states. Don't know if that helps any.

ATV's and Snowmobiles are not titled. They have certificates of origin that look like a title but not a title. Motorcycles under 250cc ae not titled either.

Good luck.

I don't think that these states are prepared for UTV's. The state of Florida does not issue titles for UTV's either. An ATV is required to be titled and have a state sticker so they can run the registration. In Florida, you have to have this sticker to ride your ATV on state lands. UTv's are not permitted on state lands, because they are more than 50" wide. The state defines an ATV or OHV as an off road vehicle having 2, 3 or 4 wheels that is 50" or less in width, and that you have to straddle the seat to operate. So this counts out the RZR also, since you sit in a seat. Most of these laws were established prior to the release of the Yamaha Rhino, and the states just have not updated the laws to include UTV's. Prior to the Rhino, this type of vehicle was used for farm or contruction use. Government is very slow at writing law, and it may take a while for the UTV's to be included.
