Fee schedule changed for Illinois ATVs

SPRINGFIELD – A new state law eliminates the registration fee for owners of all-terrain vehicles who only use them on private property.

Gov. Pat Quinn signed the measure Friday. It also cuts the fees for some ATVs used in local and state parks.

Peoria Democratic Sen. Dave Koehler said his measure refines a 2012 registration law.

The $15 registration fee is cut to $10 for smaller ATVs – typically used by children. It also exempts golf carts, vehicles for disabled people, and ATVs used by government officials or farmers. ATVs used only on private land or in competitions are also exempt.

Koehler said ATV owners want to support state parks but thought the 2012 fee schedule was unfair.

The law takes effect immediately .

___

The bill is SB2633.
