Nevada's program to register and title off-highway vehicles went into effect July 1, 2012. Nearly all off-highway vehicles greater than 70cc, and 1976 or newer, must be registered and display a registration decal to operate legally in Nevada. The cost for an annual registration is $20.00. Applications are accepted and decals are issued by mail only. Additionally, OHV dealers must be specifically licensed to sell off-highway vehicles.

Funding for the Commission's off-highway vehicle grant program relies on revenues generated by the Off-Highway Vehicle Registration Program. Your registration fees benefit the Off-Highway Vehicle community and Nevada as a whole in many ways:
The Wilderness Act of 1964 established that federal lands could be designated as Wilderness Areas; areas affected primarily by "forces of nature" rather than by people. Designated Wilderness Areas on federal lands allow only uses that fit within the law's definition of Wilderness, including hiking, horseback-riding, paddling and camping. Motorized and mechanized recreation is not allowed in wilderness.
Wilderness Study Areas are places that have wilderness characteristics and may eventually become designated Wilderness Areas. Federal land agencies manage WSAs to ensure that their suitability for becoming Wilderness Areas is not impaired before Congress can decide whether to designate them as Wilderness Areas.
Many motorized and mechanized trails in Nevada lead to the boundaries of Wilderness Areas. ATVers, UTVers, dirt bikers and mountain bikers should plan to turn around when they arrive at the boundary of a Wilderness Area.
