Welcome to the Out-of-State Public Trails and Lands Access Permit Purchase System

Snowmobile Rider North Dakota law requires all out-of-state and out-of-country snowmobiles obtain an out-of-state snowmobile permit to operate on public right of way and trail systems. The permit costs $35.00 and is required to be in the operator’s possession while driving their snowmobile within this state. The revenue generated from the sale of these passes is used to assist in maintaining North Dakota’s trail system.
