New Law Pertaining to Transportation of Unregistered OHVs

Assembly Bill 2752 was signed into law on September 15, 2014. This law amends the California Vehicle Code Section 38020 by removing the word “transport” from the first line of that section. This removes the prohibition of the moving of an unregistered off-highway vehicle while they are in the process of being transported from one location to another. Citations for having an unregistered off-highway vehicle can only be issued if the unregistered vehicle has been removed from the trailer or truck bed. This law is effective January 1, 2015.
