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

agricultural purposes on private land.
Section 2 of the bill requires all off-highway vehicle transfers on
or after July 1, 2022, to have a certificate of title, 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, 2022.
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, 2022; or
  • Used exclusively for agricultural purposes on private land.
