How To Get Street Legal In AZ From CA

Thinking of doing a trip to AZ and may need to be street legal to get to some riding places. Can that be done temporarily or do I have to do it formally. Can anyone here confirm what I would need.

I have an 08 RZR 800 with +6 long travel, Gibson Exhaust, windshields front and back, roof and full doors. No bumpers.

Not sure if it applies to UTV's but they have a 30 day permit.

If you have a CA OHV sticker then you don't need to purchase one for AZ.

Re: How To Get Street Legal In AZ From CA

CA green sticker does not get you street legal in AZ. You need turn signals and horn and insurance to apply for and get street legal. AZ does not care where you live. But the catch is you cannot get street insurance on the RZR for AZ unless you have an AZ address. You can lie about adress to the insurance company and get AZ plates but now you don’t really have insurance.

Re: How To Get Street Legal In AZ From CA

I don't think AZ MVD is going to hand over a motorcycle plate to someone out of state
If he didn't have the green sticker he would have to get an AZ OHV sticker.
It has nothing to do with street legal but he still needs either one.
Legally he also needs a state land permit too. $20 a year for a family. The state figured out how to get more money
AZ does not require turn signals, only UT. Horn, mirror, and plate light is all you need

Just call South Dakota and get it plated out of there. They will mail the plates to your California address, and then you would be street legal in AZ as long as you have street liability insurance and the correct equipment

AZ does not require residence but does require specific insurance. The turn signals are required for UT reciprocity.

Yep, South Dakota is the way to go. All done through the mail, it didn’t take a week to have the plates. I called the Union County Treasurer in SD and had the paperwork via email. The equipment requirements are pretty consistent in all the street legal states out west so I’m good in Ariz, Utah, SD, Wy and more.

Equipment and Safety Requirements
Equipment you need to operate your OHV in Arizona: Helmet: the best equipment for preventing a brain injury. A properly fitted and fastened DOT approved helmet is required for those under 18 who operate or ride an OHV. Helmets are strongly recommended for OHV operators and riders over 18. (ARS 28-964.A and 28-1179.B) Eye Protection: is required for operators of OHVs not equipped with a windshield. (ARS 28-964.A) ◆◆ Spark Arrestor that is USDA approved. (ARS 28-1179.A4) (See Definitions) ◆◆ Muffler or noise dissipative device that prevents sounds above 96 decibels during prescribed stationary sound testing. ARS 28-1179.A3) ◆◆ Headlights and tail lights for use from dusk to dawn. (ARS 28-1179.A2) ◆◆ Safety Flag at least 6” by 12” and 8’ above the ground on sand dunes or areas designated by the land management agency. (ARS 28-1179.A5) ◆◆ Brake Light and at least one red rear reflector (if tail light does not reflect) (ARS 28-927). New OHVs cannot be sold in Arizona without a brake light. ◆◆ License Plate securely fastened to the rear of the vehicle and clearly visible. (ARS 28-2512D1&2) ◆◆ Rearview mirror (ARS 28-964.B) ◆◆ Seat and Footrests for the operator and each passenger, if the OHV is designed to carry a passenger. (ARS 28-964.B) ◆◆ Also see: “Recommended Protective Gear,” page 10.
To make your OHV “Street Legal,” you’ll also need: ◆◆ License plate light. (ARS 28-925C) ◆◆ Horn audible from a distance of at least 200 feet. (ARS 28-954A) ◆◆ Proper insurance. (ARS 28-4142A) ◆◆ Emissions: Certain areas may also require you to have your OHV emissions tested. (ARS 49-542C&D) Displaying your License Plate: License plates are required to be securely attached to the rear of your vehicle and clearly displayed.
Sequence for compliance with OHV Decal law
◆◆ Determine if your vehicle qualifies for the OHV Decal (See page 8). ◆◆ Obtain a certificate of title for the qualifying vehicle. ◆◆ Obtain a license plate for the qualifying vehicle. ◆◆ Purchase the OHV Decal. ◆◆ Affix OHV Decal to upper left- hand corner of the license plate. ◆◆ Purchase street legal registration (needed if you intend to ride on roads that require registration; see www.azgfd.gov/ohv for details

Of course, insurance is rerquired

Besides the above I also added turn signals front and rear as at least Utah has that requirement. Amazon has some nice kits that include horn and button and turn signals and switch and license plate light with all the wiring, relays and fuses.
