Special Vehicle Use Permit Application

Swift County's Special Vehicle Use Ordinance authorizes the use and operation of all-terrain vehicles, mini trucks, utility task vehicles, and motorized golf carts on Swift County roadways. This Ordinance does not permit the use and operation of these recreational vehicles on federal or state highways and streets or roads under the jurisdiction of a city or township.


A Special Vehicle Use Permit must be applied for and approved for each recreational vehicle intended to be operated on a designated county roadway. Special Vehicle Use Permits are issued for a two year period and are valid from the issuance date until December 31st of the following year.  Recreational vehicle owners are responsible for the renewal of the Special Vehicle Use Permit every two years. The permit can be purchased on-line or in person at the Sheriff's office during regular business hours from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM Monday-Friday, excluding holidays. The Special Vehicle Use Permit sticker shall be located on a plate that is clearly visible on the back of the all-terrain vehicle, mini truck, utility task vehicle, and motorized golf cart. The Special Vehicle Use Permit fee is $10.00 for a two-year permit.
