To do so, you’ll need to visit your local county treasurer’s office with the following:

  • Proof of ownership. 
  • A non-highway-use title application. 
  • Payment for your title fees and taxes. 

ATV & Off-Road Vehicle Laws in Kansas

It is illegal to ride an ATV on interstate highways, state highways, and federal highways. 

Riding within city limits is controlled by local authorities. Be sure to check with the governing body in your jurisdiction. 

Regardless of whether a particular state or trail requires it, ATV/UTV and dirt bike riders and passengers should always wear the proper safety equipment and helmets while riding.
