Reciprocity

There is currently no reciprocity among New Hampshire and other states for OHRVs or snowmobiles, except as follows:

Snowmobile Reciprocity Weekend: Before each riding season, N.H. Fish and Game will advise as to the snowmobile reciprocity status for this weekend (January 26-28, 2018; visit ride.nh.gov). This reciprocal weekend is valid only if Vermont and/or Maine continue to make their snowmobile trails open to all legally registered N.H. snowmobiles. Some states and provinces require proof of insurance and payment of a trail use fee or club membership. Call ahead for requirements and restrictions.

Stolen OHRVs or Snowmobiles

If your vehicle is stolen, report the theft to your local police department immediately.

When reporting a theft and a copy of the registration is not available, the following information should be given:

  • Owner information; name, address and telephone number.
  • Vehicle information; make, model, displacement, year of manufacture, V.I.N., and primary/secondary colors.
  • Registration information; number and most recent year registered.

Event Permits

Any person, organization or corporation who wishes to operate or promote any snowmobile or OHRV event or contest involving the use of unregistered snowmobiles or unregistered OHRVs, shall procure an event permit from the Executive Director of N.H. Fish and Game. The application for the permit shall be on an annual basis, shall include a listing of scheduled events, and shall be accompanied by an annual fee of $50.

Note: Event permits must be received 30 days in advance. For more information and an application, please visit ride.nh.gov

Alcohol/Drugs

It is illegal to operate or attempt to operate any OHRV or snowmobile while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, or with a blood alcohol concentration greater than .08% or .02% if less than 21 years old. Penalties for snowmobile and OHRV DWI and procedures for testing correspond with Motor Vehicle DWI. Snowmobile and OHRV operators must submit to a test or tests to determine blood alcohol concentration. Failure to consent to a test results in the loss of the operator’s driver’s license.

Suspended Driver’s License Warning

It is unlawful to operate an OHRV or snowmobile while driver’s license is under suspension or revocation in any state or Canadian province.
