atv with no paper work

Recommended Posts

I am looking at an old Polaris atv with no registration card or title. What are the steps to getting it registered? Is it worth the hassle.

If it's an early, and I mean early model Polaris, I believe no registration is required (25 years or older). Otherwise registration is required.

Local DMV can give you specifics on what you need. You'd be surprised how requirements change based on different offices and who's working any particular day.

His question was how hard it would be to get it registered without a title or other paperwork. The answer is he does not need a title or paper work, simply go to the county registrar's office and tell them that you bought a used atv from a private party, pay the $45 for the 3 year sticker and put it on the license plate. He never stated that he wouldn't get it registered.

Well apparently if the registered owner just lost the registration card, then all that is needed is a bill of sale from them. This particular one has been passed around a few times without being registered so I think I am out.

Son's friend just went through this with a snowmobile. I think he just brought in a bill of sale. Seller didn't even register from the previous owner. DMV looked it up and registered it for him.

One DMV station requested a bill of sale for an ATV I had unregistered for many years. Went to the other DMV and she didn't request one.

I just went through this EXACT same thing two weeks ago.

Give the DMV your ATV's VIN. They can look it up and tell you if it's registered in MN. They can not give you the owner on record's name, but they can tell you if it's registered. If the vehicle doesn't show up in the system, you register it under your name. Cost me $52 the other day.

If it does show up in the system, you gotta figure out who had it registered and try to get ahold of him to get a Bill of Sale. Otherwise there's no way to prove you attained the vehicle legally from the owner on record.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
