What is a New York State Snowmobile Association (NYSSA) Snowmobile Club voucher ID No.?
If you are a member of a NYSSA snowmobile club, you receive a voucher that includes an ID number. Your voucher ID number is located in the top right corner of your NYSSA club membership voucher, above the barcode. If you have a current NYSSA voucher, enter the voucher ID number in the box provided. If you do not have a current voucher, skip the voucher ID number section.
If you have a current, valid NYSSA voucher, the fee for your registration is $45.00. If you do not have a NYSSA voucher, the fee is $100.
What is the temporary registration and what is the regular registration?
Your snowmobile must be registered in NYS to be operated in NYS, even if it is registered in another state. This transaction allows you to register your snowmobile and receive a 15-day temporary registration online. You can use the temporary registration to immediately operate your sled in NYS. The DMV also mails you a regular registration document, valid until August 31.
Why can't I enter my complete address?
The snowmobile registration system allows for only 20 characters for the street address and 14 characters for the city. Spaces count as a character. If your street address or city name is too long to fit in the field(s), please follow these guidelines (in the order presented) until the information fits within the field:
- Use numbers (digits) instead of words, for the house number.
- If the street name is a word which has an accepted abbreviation (e.g. the name of a state), use that abbreviation.
- Abbreviate the street type.
- Omit the street type.
- Remove vowels starting from the last letter of the street name. If the name ends in 2 vowels, start omitting vowels from the last consonant.
Two Park Avenue could be entered as 2 PARK AV
1575 Massachusetts Avenue could be entered as 1575 MASS AV
14040 W Humphreysville Road Avenue could be entered as 14040 W HUMPHREYSVLL
Why is my name shorter on my registration than what I entered?
Due to limited space in the DMV registration system, your name may be shortened to fit on the document. The document is valid with the shorter name.
