Customers To Receive Snowmobile, ATV Renewals Faster

PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch and Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) Acting Secretary Ellen Ferretti have an- nounced that customers will receive their ATV and snowmobile vehicle registration renewals two to four weeks faster through a new interagency partnership.

Beginning July 1, Penn- DOT’s state-of-the-art processing and mailing technology is processing DCNR’s renewals for consumer snowmobiles, ATVs and dealer registrations, with customers receiving products within two weeks. Applicants will still mail applications to DCNR, but they will be opened, processed and fulfilled by PennDOT.

“This is a prime example of our efforts through Next Generation to modernize our operations and reduce overlaps in service with other agencies,” Schoch said.

Previously, registration quarterly renewals were issued and received by DCNR. Upon receiving the registration they were manually processed by staff, generally allowing for a four- to sixweek processing time before ATV and snowmobile owners would receive their updated registration.

“By merging these services, the new renewal registration process will improve efficiency and allow DCNR to better utilize staff and resources to focus on core functions of the agency,” Ferretti said. “Partnering with PennDOT by using its automated equipment provides a processing time that will be a much shorter turnaround period for the almost 260,000 registered ATV owners and 37,370 registered snowmobile owners across the state.”
