Have you dreamt of getting your SxS street legal? There are only a few steps you need to take to make your SxS street legal! Here’s how to register a street legal SxS:
Select a Montana Registered Agent like us, who will handle all of your LLC set up, vehicle registration, and annual reports.
Street Legal SxS Checklist: To make your UTV street legal, you will need to make sure you complete each item on the street legal SxS checklist. This will ensure your quadricycle is road ready!
Obtain Montana Tags: To drive your SxS on public roads in your home state, you will need to obtain Montana tags and a Montana license plate. Montana Registered Agent LLCTLC will handle all of this for you, so you never have to step foot in Montana or call our local DMV. We fully represent you, your SxS, and your Montana LLC!
Bonus: Montana provides PERMANENT SxS/UTV/ATV/quadricycle motorcycle, boat, and trailer registration. Therefore, once you receive your Montana license plate and Montana tags, no annual registration or tag renewal is required!
Obtain insurance: You will also need to obtain insurance for your UTV to drive it on public roads legally. We recommend you check with your current insurance provider first to see if they offer insurance for street-legal UTVs/SxSs. If you hit a wall with your agent, we have other agents we can recommend and will insure you.
Self-inspection: After achieving the items on the checklist, getting your Montana tags & license plate, and becoming insured you will perform a “self-inspection” of your quadricycle. This is done on the honor system, as Montana does not require vehicle inspections or emissions tests. Instead, you’ll sign off on your own inspection.
Follow all traffic laws: Once your SxS/UTV is street-legal, be sure to follow all traffic laws and regulations. This includes obeying speed limits, using turn signals, and following all other traffic laws.
What if I get pulled over? If you do get pulled over by law enforcement in your street-legal SxS/street-legal UTV, you’ll have all of the necessary documentation that shows your Montana LLC owns the vehicle and therefore you are legal to ride on the road.
