Snowmobile Registration


Snowmobile registrations are required for the operation of any snowmobile within the state (unless the operation is exempt from registration), and the registration decals must be properly displayed.

Public Use Registration

The fee for the issuance or renewal of a public-use registration is $30.00. 

Effective July 1, 2015 registration fee structure will change to a $30/3 year registration.  The registration process will not change.

Out of State Registration

Coming from out of state?

Wisconsin law requires those who use Wisconsin snowmobile trails to display a Wisconsin Snowmobile Trail Pass. Funds from this program will be designated for use as trail aids and related costs to enhance all Wisconsin snowmobile recreation.

The trail pass may be purchased over the counter at many authorized sales locations or by calling WDNR at 1-888-WDNRINFo (1-888-936-7463)

The $50 non-resident snowmobile trail use pass is valid from July 1st through June 30th.

A snowmobile trail pass is required to operate a snowmobile not currently registered in Wisconsin on a snowmobile trail.  The snowmobile must be currently registered with another jurisdiction.  The trail pass must be permanently affixed by its own adhesive to the bottom center portion of the snowmobile windshield. If there is no windshield, the sticker shall be displayed in a highly visible location on the front of the cowling of the snowmobile.  Once affixed, the sticker may not be removed or transferred to another snowmobile.
