In my state, you can register a RTV for off highway use, which will allow you to drive it on any road that is maintained by the county. My plates just came in the mail today from the dealership. For Tennessee, it is registered as a Class 1 Off Highway Vehicle. I am still keeping the SMV sign on the back window screen. I may mount the plate next to the SMV sign. Does the state you live in allow you to run your RTV on the county roads?
