The form seemed to be for registering your OHV...I didn't think a licensed on road vehicle needed to do the registration.

Ige...did you submit the registration form to get a sticker for your 80 series? I didn't even see a spot for a licensed on-road vehicle...only motorbikes, snowmobiles, etc.

yes, i ordered one for my 80 series using the online form. although most of the places we go are roads, there are still a lot of actual "trails" in colorado. jenny creek is one that requires an ohv permit because it is a trail, not a road

From the CPW Website:
​For Non-Residents and Resident Plated Vehicles:

​OHV Permits for non-residents and resident plated vehicles (off road + street legal vehicles) are available for purchase online. Please allow 14 days for your order to arrive in the mail.

OHV permits are also available at retail locations selling hunting and fishing licen​ses​. To purchase a permit in-person upon arrival in Colorado, please see the license agent list to find a retail location near you.​

The website lists this link:

However, I could not find an OHV permit. I spoke with the CPW office and they said the permit cannot be purchased online. List of locations at which you can obtain a permit are below:

Hope this helps.

You can renew online. You cannot buy one online if you haven't purchased one for it yet. I renewed my dirtbike and my Toyota online this year.

I receive my OHV permit. It is a long plastic printed strip with detachable sections and a clear decal with a single card-sized window that you use to stick the thing on. My question is what part of all this is the permit you display and how do you know why? Do I fold these four card-sized sections? The top three say "License not valid if detached." The top most part has my address, phone, DOB, and driver's license number (which is why I obscured it here). Any suggestions?

Thanks for the reminder! Looks like they are using the same format as the hunting and fishing licenses.

Is their a sticky portion? Or are you just supposed to keep it on your person while in your vehicle?

Mine came with a sticky plastic applicator "window" - you place the OHV permit inside the "window" and stick it to your windshield. Mine is proudly displayed on my windshield, just above the abomination that is my ExpressToll pass. :mad:

What part of the four-part strip ((pictured above) do you use?

I could put it inside the window.

I used the section that says “detach and keep with vehicle at all times”. Might not be the correct one, but it certainly made the most sense! :D

I see that argument, but all the ones above say "license not valid if detached", so if the bottom segment is the license, then they all stay attached.

FYI to all that below the last segment I show above, there were three more segments that were only the mailing label that showed through the envelope window.

It looks like it has your CID on it, I mean maybe it doesn't matter but i kinda wouldn't want to display that. I think i'd just keep it in the truck and provide if asked. it seems like this is all getting figured out anyways. I find it odd you don't simply get a sticker like any other OHV.

I got one (first time for LC) from St Vrain State park at the entrance booth... mine looks like the more traditional OHV square with a 5 digit number (not my CID) but it's a 2020 from a park not a store, either of which could be the difference.
It was pretty easy once they figured out how to do it for a Colorado registered highway vehicle. At first they were focused on needing either a bill of sale or ranger vin inspection to register it but finally decided that portion is more for ATV's as I didn't need a 'Registration' just an OHV tag. The ranger finally told the volunteer that she needed to run my OHV sticker as out of state so the system would not force registration (cuz I'm already a registered vehicle in colorado yo). At that point all they needed was my VIN, plate number, and drivers license (name and address) and I was done.
Online renewal should be easier still.
