You’ll need to register and title your ATV in Louisiana.

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

  • A title and registration application (DPSMV 1799). 
  • Proof of ownership of the ATV:
    • Certificate of title. 
    • MCO. 
    • Notarized Bill of Sale. 
  • Proof of insurance. 
  • Proof of sales tax paid. 
  • Payment for title and registration fees.

ATV & Off-Road Vehicle Laws in Louisiana

Be sure to check the rules, regulations and fees for the Louisiana off-road trails you plan on riding. Local laws and regulations may vary. 

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. 

Never operate an off-road vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol. 

Failing to obey the off-road vehicle laws of Louisiana and the local jurisdiction may result in tickets, fines, and penalties.
