ORV Registrationand Licensing ORVs were registered in Michigan with the Secretary of State from 1975-1991. This was phased out from 1991-94 and fully replaced by ORV licensing with the DNR which began in 1991 and was fully in place in 1994 and continues to the present. The Michigan Secretary of State maintains ORV registration records from 1976 – 1994 and the Michigan DNR maintains ORV license records from 1991 – present.

The trend in registrations/licenses is steadily upward over the past 30 years (Table 11). While there are declines in some individual years (often coinciding with poor economic conditions such as FY 1982-83) the trend is clearly upward. It is not unreasonable to assume 200,000 registered ORVs in 2004-05 by the conclusion of the license year.

  • (a)

    Registration data from the Michigan Secretary of State (1975-76 – 1990-91); No data available 1991-92 – 1993-94; DNR licensing data from the DNR Office of Contracts, Grants and Customer Service (1994-95 – 2004-05)

  • (b)

    Secretary of State changed method of reporting registrations in 1986-87. Prior to that time only 3 year registrations transacted within the license year were reported. For 1986-87 and beyond, all registrations in force were reported.

  • (c)

    Incomplete data as license year was not completed when plan was drafted

Statewide ORV Use and User Studies Three statewide ORV use and user studies have been conducted in Michigan: Alexander and Jamsen (1977); Nelson (1989) and Nelson et al. (2000). Each involved a mail survey that was used to sample more than 1,500 riders.

The three studies show some key trends/changes in ORV use and users, yet they also illustrate some on-going challenges that have changed little since the first study was
