NYS Registration

Riders must register their snowmobile with New York State each year.

Registering your snowmobile online (for snowmobiles currently registered in your name only)

Registering online is the fastest way to receive your New York State registration form. You can register with NYS and print out a temporary certificate of snowmobile registration immediately. Ride legally and support the clubs!
  • The Snowmobile you are registering online must currently be registered in your name. If you have just purchased the snowmobile and it has not yet been registered in your name, you must go to the NYS Department of Motor Vehicles to register your snowmobile.

  • You must have your current year club voucher available when you register online as the registration process requires the NYSSA snowmobile club voucher ID number to receive your discounted registration. If you do not have a current year club voucher your registration will cost more, and the local clubs that maintain the trails will receive less money. The process to obtain a club voucher is described on our club voucher page.

  • IMPORTANT NOTE - When you go to one of the two links below, you will be asked for you voucher ID, which you have printed out or downloaded as a PDF in the bullet item above. The Voucher ID is located at the top of the voucher above the bar code in this format 11-1111-111111. When you enter the voucher ID in the DMV website, leave out the dashes and it will process correctly. There will not be enough room if you leave the dashes in the numbers.
