The law requires all OHV users to register their OHVs if used on public land. New Mexico residents must purchase OHV registration decals from the Motor Vehicle Division (MVD). Non-residents can purchase OHV registration decals from the Department of Game and Fish Online Sales website ( The new Paved Road decals allowing operation of ATVs and ROVs on authorized roads are obtained the same way, via MVD for residents and via the NMDGF website for non-residents.
