Title a Florida Off-Highway Vehicle

Why do I need a Title for an Off-Highway Vehicle?

It is the intent of the Legislature that all off-highway vehicles purchased after the effective date of the "Florida Off-Highway Vehicle Titling Act" (July 1, 2002) and all off-highway vehicles operated on public lands be titled to provide for easy determination of ownership.

What is an Off-Highway Vehicle?

An "off-highway vehicle" is defined as any all-terrain vehicle (ATV) or off-highway motorcycle (OHM) that is used off the roads or highways of this state for recreational purposes and that is not registered and licensed for highway use pursuant to Chapter 320, Florida Statutes.

What does ROV mean?

An "ROV" means any motorized recreational off-highway vehicle 60 inches or less in width, having a dry weight of 1,500 pounds or less, designed to travel on four or more non-highway tires, having non-straddle seating and a steering wheel, and manufactured for recreational use by one or more persons.
