Why You Should Street License Your UTV
If you’ve looked up the requirements to make your UTV street legal, you may feel a little overwhelmed. There are a few requirements that take some time to complete and it may leave you wondering why you should street license your UTV.
It will ultimately come down to your riding preferences and what you use your UTV for most, but street licensing your UTV can potentially save you lots of time and money.
#1. YOU DON’T HAVE TO LOAD UP A TRAILER
If you’re looking to ride some nearby trails or explore the mountain in your backyard, getting your UTV street licensed means you won’t have to waste time loading up a trailer, driving to your destination, and then unloading before actually getting inside your UTV.
In fact, if you street license your UTV you don’t even have to own a truck and trailer! When purchasing a UTV, some people fail to realize that the cost of the UTV isn’t the only cost they’ll need to cover.
Without a street licensed UTV you will need to have a way to transport it. And many enthusiasts may not have enough to purchase a UTV and trailer and truck all at once.
You can save up for those bigger purchases if you want to do some rides further from home while you enjoy nearby excursions.
#2. PEACE OF MIND
If you use your UTV to do work around your property, or several properties you own, it can be very tempting to quickly drive between your destinations on the streets with your UTV. But each time you do this you are technically breaking the law and can easily end up with a ticket.
When you street license your UTV you follow the law (which you should do in all circumstances) and you have peace of mind knowing that you don’t have to look over your shoulder worrying if there is a cop waiting to catch you. If you know you’re going to be spending any time on the streets in your UTV, give yourself the gift of peace of mind and get it street licensed.
#3. SAVE ON GAS AND WEAR AND TEAR
You use your car every day to commute to work. If you need to run some quick errands around town or in your neighborhood use your street licensed UTV instead of your vehicle! Using your UTV will not only save you a ton on gas money, but it’ll also save you on the wear and tear of your vehicle. Give your car a break and take your street licensed UTV out instead.
When making your UTV street legal, you may decide that you’d like to add a UTV windshield. Rather than choosing a cheap UTV windshield, go for something made of MR10 lexan that will stand the test of time.
Whether you’ve been window shopping for an EMP windshield, the best RZR windshield, or a Kawasaki Mule 610 windshield, it’s a good idea to talk to a professional to help you make you make the best decision for your UTV.
