According to Florida law, motor vehicles only need one rearview mirror. This mirror must reflect the road 200 feet behind the vehicle for the driver. Other conditions are stricter and may require the use of two or even three mirrors (one in the cockpit). It is best to check with local authorities for county policies.
For example, Florida laws allow counties to vote on whether people can ride ATVs on paved public roads with a speed limit of less than 35 miles per hour. Until you receive official confirmation, it`s best to stay away from paved public roads. Most OFFV VEHICLES don`t come with road-approved DOT tires, so you`ll need to install DOT (Department of Transportation) tires to be road-approved. Luckily, they`re easy to find online in many different sizes for your UTV and there are even some pretty aggressive off-road tires that are always legal on the road.

Using DOT tires is much safer, won`t affect your off-road performance, and will prevent you from getting a ticket for illegal tires. In Florida, an ATV can travel during the day on a dirt public road with a speed limit of less than 35 mph. This provision does not apply to UTVs unless approved by the local authority. You are not allowed to ride an ATV or UTV on any other road, road or highway. Tyres are often overlooked when converting from a UTV to road homologation. Some states willingly allow side-by-side on their highways, and the aftermarket has grown to fill the niches that this small market has created.

You can cross your fingers that all your papers will be correct the first time, because if they don`t, you will pay for it in cash and wasted time. And after all that, it could go wrong again. Solution: Install as many road safety parts as possible.
Parts such as horns, head restraints, lap belts and turn signals. Also, always pay attention to other drivers and try to drive as if your grandmother was sitting in the passenger seat. The state of Florida requires motor vehicles traveling on highways to be equipped with a horn that can be heard from a distance of 200 feet. Of course, it is impossible to enforce this rule as written, but it does mean that the horn must be loud on a legal UTV for the street. You can obtain a title by filing an application with your county tax collector.
