Description

Current law requires an off-highway vehicle to have a certificate
of title to be transferred unless:
  • It was first transferred before July 1, 2014, and not
subsequently transferred to an off-highway vehicle dealer;
or
  • It was used exclusively for agricultural purposes on private

land.
Section 2 of the bill requires all off-highway vehicle transfers to have a
certificate of title on or after July 1, 2021, but the agricultural exemption
is not changed. Section 1 exempts private transfers of off-highway
vehicles from sales tax if the transfer occurred on or after July 1, 2014,
and before July 1, 2021.
Current law authorizes motor vehicle dealers, salvage pools, and
insurers to electronically access the department of revenue's ownership
and lienholder records to verify motor vehicle ownership and lienholding
information to prevent fraud. Section 3 authorizes off-highway vehicle
dealers to access this system to verify the same information on
off-highway vehicles for the same reasons.
Notwithstanding the requirement that an off-highway vehicle have
a title to be purchased by a dealer, current law authorizes a dealer to
purchase an off-highway vehicle that was initially sold before July 1,
2014, and was never titled. The dealer must obtain an affidavit from the
owner and then use the affidavit to obtain a title. Section 4 extends this
authorization and procedure to off-highway vehicles privately transferred
on or after July 1, 2014, and before July 1, 2021.
