How to Make Your SxS Street-Legal with Montana Tags

Realizing the Potential of Your SxS with Montana Tags

The rush of riding your SxS off-road is an unparalleled experience. But imagine the possibilities if your SxS could also be driven on public roads. With Montana tags, this possibility becomes a reality. Montana's flexible vehicle registration laws allow you to make your SxS street-legal with Montana plates, expanding your riding opportunities beyond just the trails.

By legally registering your SxS in Montana, you can enjoy the freedom of the open road without worry. This opens up a whole new realm of adventures for SxS owners who are dying to take their SxS on the open road.

Understanding the Legal Aspects of Making Your SxS Street-Legal

The process involves forming a Limited Liability Company (LLC) in Montana and registering the SxS under that company. This way, you're taking advantage of Montana's vehicle registration laws without maintaining your personal residence in the state.

However, it's essential to understand that once your SxS is street-legal, you must adhere to the specific regulations of any state you're driving in. This includes obeying traffic laws and carrying appropriate insurance coverage. It's recommended to seek professional advice from our trusted registered agents to navigate the legal requirements of Montana LLC formation.

Why Choose Montana Tags Instead of Registering in Your Home State

Why you would choose to register your SxS in Montana instead of your home state? There are two different, very compelling answers:

Many States Won’t Allow SxSs to be Registered as Street-Legal

In Montana, your SxS can be registered for both street-legal and off-road use. At LLCTLC, we offer an affordable Street-Legal SxS Package that includes setting up a Montana LLC and the fees for plates, title, and street-legal registration for your SxS. This means that your SxS will be street-legal and permanently registered, so there are no annual vehicle renewal fees from your state of residence.

Most states don’t allow for any resident to register their SxS for street use at all. Others allow street-legal registration for your SxS, but with restrictions.

Montana has other standout qualities as well: no sales tax, no inspections, and easy-to-meet registration requirements.


Montana doesn't charge sales tax on vehicle purchases. This means you could potentially save a couple hundred dollars when purchasing and registering your SxS with Montana tags as opposed to your home state, especially if you reside in a state with high sales tax rates. For example, if you're from New York, where the sales tax can be as high as 8.875%, that's a significant amount of cash we can keep in your pocket! And as a bonus, SxSs have permanent registration status in Montana, so the state will not charge an annual renewal for new Montana tags each year. Once you’re registered, you’re good to go!

Why Registered Agents are Essential for Acquiring Montana Tags

The process of acquiring Montana plates for your SxS and making it street-legal may seem out of reach, particularly for out-of-state residents. But this is where a registered agent comes into play.
