Tell us about your business

First of all, please tell our listeners a high overview of what Dirt Legal does?

Do you also help with titling vehicles that people import from other countries?

What parts are generally needed when making something street legal that is currently for off road only?

Are there things that you can’t register for people?

I was reading your blog on how to get a title for a military vehicle and it mentioned that the person applying would end up with a “out of state tag”.  Does that mean that it will have plates from a different state?  Will I have to change them to my state eventually?

If something like a UTV or Dirtbike is licensed in another state can it be driven on the road in all the other states?

I assume that insurance is needed to drive any of the vehicles that we’ve talked about on the street?

I read that some vehicles can only be registered as a “low speed vehicle”.  What does that mean and how can they typically be used on the street?

What are the chances of getting a ticket because the cop doesn’t believe that my vehicle is road legal?

Do you know how I can get around the Oregon law that prohibits me from driving a Kei sized vehicle on the street? I came here to ask this
