The Department of Natural Resources is reminding off-road vehicle operators about the laws regarding registration of their ORVs and them being operated on public roads.
All ORVs operated on public property must be registered with the DNR. And, any ORV five model years or less, and bought after Dec. 31, 2005, must have a certificate of title from the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
Registration forms are available from most dealers, most license branches and the Department of Natural Resources Customer Service Center, or they can be printed from the website http://www.in.gov/dnr/outdoor/ohv/ohvfaq.htm.
An individual may not operate an ORV required to be registered upon a public highway, street or rights of way thereof or on a public or private parking lot not specifically designated for the use of vehicles, except under the following conditions:
A handbook describing Indiana laws governing ORVs and snowmobiles can be found at http://www.offroad-ed.com/in/handbook.
A copy of Indiana's off-road-vehicle laws can be found at http://www.ai.org/legislative/ic/code/title14/ ar16/ch1.html.
