Hi Friends!

I'm also a New owner of Honda Pioneer and I am very happy. But here is the deal:

My wife want it to go around the neighborhood, playgrounds with the kids and so on...and I want it for a muddy adventure. So I have a question I'm trying the have this vehicle an street legal here in Texas. Is anyone that you know that already have this done? because I been calling to the TXDMV & TXDOT and looks like if I have all the street legal things like blinkers, horn, mirrors e insurance I can make this Vehicle street legal. The Title it says Motorcycle. I know I should been doing this research before but this ATV was so nice that I can't let it go, it have only 4 miles on in it, I bought it on Dec 18.

Well Friends Like I said I'm excited and Hope I can learn a lot from you guys! I need an advice in the street legal thing, I have to have the the wife Happy. :) HELP PLEASE...

Walter p.

Richmond Tx. Thats way down south now ain't it. my brother and my parents live out by Paris TX. Its close to Dallas. I spent a lot of time down on Shepards Airforce Base a long time back, up there in Witchita Falls. Heck someday, I might move down there too =)

My dad and brother run horses and ATV's for transportation, they don't have any UTV's, but I will surely drop them a line tonight and see if they know anything. It might not matter, what they know though, there is a lot of area and county lines from you.

Here in WI, where I live. Our township, says an ATV and a UTV are two different things. I can drive my ATV down the road and to the local bar, wherever, and it isn't a problem. It doesn't have to have any street legal mods, just a sticker and a plate. My Pioneer can not touch the road unless its on a trailer. but up here this is the order of importance to the DNR and townships. Sleds, then ATV's, then SxS.

Best of luck with your inquiries. I'll let you know if I hear anything positive.

Thats a nice looking family you have there too. My kids love the Pioneer. I can't get my daughter to ride in anything else now. haha

Welcome to the group.
I can't help you on Texas laws (only there once and I am sure I broke some) but I can assure you that the red Pioneers are the best.

Enjoy,

Ok Friends, thank you for your reply's and thank you for the welcoming, is kind of frustrating no to find the right way to do this. I found a guy in forth worth who says he service UTV's and so far he has seen more than 6 street legal with inspection plates and everything and his shop. https://abffabrication.com/street-legal-utv-in-texas/
But when I try to do what he advice to do in his website well the tax collector office refuse to change the tile because de MCO (Manufacture certificate Origin) of the Pioneer it says MV for "Recreational off-road Vehicle" and that is the big time wall that stop the whole process. I have the vehicle inspected, I have it totally street legal with light mirrors etc.., Insurance but the Tax collector office don't let me do it. Moose any word from your dad or brother in Paris TX? OK guys I will keep looking but if I find the loop of this I'll let you guys know. Mil Thanks!!!

my 2 cents

I've found that all DMV offices in a given area are not equal. If I'm dealing with a lost title / family xfer to avoid taxes...I always go to a small town to get er done. The bigger the DMV, the more likely they have the word "No" formed on their lips. I've even resorted to googling reviews to find the most helpful DMV's before.
Good Luck and No might mean "I'm too lazy to help"

Thats what i also find. i think it comes with the wide range of the type of people they get in cities. but in small towns it's much more friendly, more like a little family

Welcome to the forum!!

As far as street legal, go to the DMV with your title and ask them. We can ride in town here with a permit but no way to make it "street legal". Goodluck!

New owner myself, Abilene, Texas. Wondering about this as well. My 2018 is still at the dealership waiting on a windshield. Keep us updated if you find a way to get this done.
