The roads we'll be on are public and blm roads.
It just gets tricky understanding the regulations because residents seem to be required to have their 4wheelers street legal. Nonresidents look like they're only required to have their 4wheeler registered in their home state; doesn't say anything about needing to be street legal.
The 4wheeler is registered in our own state, but not street legal.
If it's registered but not street legal can we drive it out there?
I know to license a 4 wheeler in MT you must have: Head light, Tail light, Brake light, Horn, R. View mirror, and one working brake. You must have a Street, HWY MC plate to drive on all public roads, even Forest Service 4WD two track. An OHV sticker is really only good in the few State OHV Parks. If I were you, I'd call MDOT and ask your Q's, since you are from out of state, the LE might let you slide with a warning. BTW liability ins not required.
