Changes to licensing modified off-road motorcycles - effective January 1, 2012
Washington State Law now requires all motorcycles originally manufactured as off-road motorcycles to submit additional information in order to complete registration. To complete registration bring the following into any vehicle licensing office:
- Your completed Motor Highway Use Declaration form
- A copy of the receipt showing you paid for the safety inspection
- The title for the motorcycle. If the bank has the title, you'll need to work with your bank to get the title.
