Safety Inspections

Effective January 1, 2018, the State of Utah removed the safety inspection requirement for most vehicles as a prerequisite for registration. Vehicles that require a safety inspection are listed below.

  • Salvage vehicles that have been rebuilt and are requesting a rebuilt title.

  • First time street legal ATV registrations. This includes ownership transfers for previously registered street legal ATVs.

  • Commercial vehicles are required to obtain a safety inspection for display and presenting to law enforcement, but it is not a prerequisite for registration.
