* Reflects data as of December 31st. Class 1 and 2 ATVs require the same three-year registration. This figure includes the following four expiration classes: the present year, and each of the three succeeding years.

** This column reflects tax-exempt (non-expiring) and private/agricultural (a one-time fee) registrations. The one-time registration of private/agricultural and tax-exempt machines means these are never purged from the system from year to year.
