Re: My quest to be Street Legal in Missouri
Here is from state statues, If they titled them they did it in error in my opinion read bottom section.
Off-Road Utility Vehicles
A “Utility vehicle” is “any motorized vehicle manufactured and used exclusively for off-highway use which is sixty-three inches or less in width, with an unladen dry weight of 1,850 pounds or less, traveling on four or six wheels, to be used primarily for landscaping, lawn care, or maintenance purposes.”
Utility vehicles do not meet the definition of a motor vehicle or ATV, and will not be titled and registered. Examples of off-road utility vehicles include, but are not limited to:
Utility vehicles cannot be operated upon the highways of this state unless they are:
Owned and operated by governmental entity for official use,
Operated for agricultural or industrial on-premise purposes, or
Operated by handicapped persons for short distances on secondary roads.
The operator must have a valid driver license, but does not have to be motorcycle qualified.
Cities/counties are allowed to issue special permits for utility vehicles to be used on county roads within the county or on highways within the city to licensed drivers for a fee of $15. The fee is to be kept by such city/county.
The seller of a utility vehicle is responsible for collecting and remitting all applicable state and local tax on new utility vehicles.
Utility vehicle owners may qualify for a “farm use” tax exemption.
Recreational Off-Highway Vehicles
A “Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle" is "any motorized vehicle manufactured and used exclusively for off-highway use which is sixty inches or less in width, with an unladen dry weight of one thousand eight hundred fifty pounds or less, traveling on four or more nonhighway tires, with a nonstraddle seat, and steering wheel, which may have access to ATV trails."
Recreational off-highway vehicles do not meet the definition of a motor vehicle or ATV, and will not be titled and registered.
