NEW LAWS APPROVED REGULATING USE OF UTILITY TERRAIN VEHICLES

April 17, 2012

MADISON -- A new Wisconsin law providing for permanent registration and updated regulation of utility terrain vehicles will go into effect on July 1, 2012. The law has grown from popular UTV pilot programs the Department of Natural Resources conducted over the last several years.

Any UTVs registered during the pilot program will continue to be registered with the previously assigned registration identification number and registration period. The Department will be providing more detailed information to the public in the future through their website, press releases and informational pamphlets.

The major changes include:
