Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

  • The renewal fee is $30. Ahead of renewing your snowmobile decal, you will be mailed a renewal notice.

  • Snowmobile registration decals expire on September 30, every three years following issuance. You can renew as early as July 1 of the year that your decal expires.

  • If you aren’t a Michigan resident, you will need to renew your snowmobile registration decal by mail. You can also renew at a Secretary of State office while you’re in Michigan. It’s strongly recommended that you schedule an office visit in advance.

  • Allow enough time for ordering, processing, and mail delivery when renewing a snowmobile registration online, by mail, or at a self-service station. A Secretary of State office can process your renewal immediately.

  • In addition to the registration decal, snowmobiles must also display an annual snowmobile trail permit sticker on the front of the snowmobile, centered on the hood above the headlight.

    Trail permits cost $52 and expire each year on September 30. You can purchase a trail permit from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

    Snowmobiles used exclusively on private lands or on the ice when ice fishing on public lands are exempt from the registration and trail permit requirements.
