Ride in Vermont
Are you looking to visit Vermont to ride? It’s now easier than ever to enjoy ATVing in Vermont.
Your ATV must have a valid registration. You can register in your home state, or visit the Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles to register here in Vermont. Cost per registering an ATV in Vermont is currently $45 per year.
Once you have a valid registration from any state, you are ready to JOIN/RENEW VASA TODAY
The JOIN VASA TODAY link will take you to the JOIN page.
There you will be able to purchase a TAD (Trail Access Decal), transfer an existing TAD to another vehicle or purchase a club only membership to any of the VASA clubs (TAD not included).
All you need is an image of a current ATV registration from any state, valid credit card and email address.
Once you have completed the application and uploaded the image of your registration, you receive a 10-day temporary pass sent to the email address you provided.
Your application will be verified and a permanent registration including TAD will be mailed to the address in the application.
Affix your Trail Access Decals to the front and rear of your machine and you are ready to ride.
Cost is as follows:
If you have a Vermont registration, everything you need to ride in Vermont will cost $60. The breakdown of where your money goes is as follows: Out of your total $60, $30 is for your Trail Access Decals, $10 is for your VASA membership and $20 is for your local club membership.
If you have an out of state registration (YES! VASA does accept all valid registrations from any state.) your Trail Access Decals will cost you $45 more. All of the other costs remain the same so your total will be $105.
