New Registration System Online!
You can buy your registrations and permits online, in-person at vendors, or over the phone.
Most of our customers are choosing the convenience of the web option to renew or register their boats and recreational vehicles, using our new system. Online purchases give you a temporary registration, valid for 60 days, which allows you to go and play — right away.
Here are tips to make it easier:
- If you’ve registered in 2018, 2019, or 2020, please first look for yourself in the system before trying to create a new account.
- The search will attempt to locate your existing profile using a personal identifier (driver’s license, Social Security Number, etc.). If your initial search attempt fails, please retry with a different identifier.
- You may be asked to update your information. Please do so; creating duplicate accounts may prevent you from completing the transaction.
- If you have never purchased an IDPR registration product or permit — or camped at an Idaho State Park — please create an account.
- If you bought a Non-Resident Snowmobile or Off-Highway Vehicle product, you also will need to create an account.
- Please email IDPRCustomerSupport@idpr.idaho.gov if you need assistance.
2. Buy from a Vendor
Please look at this list or at this interactive map for a convenient option. More than 140 vendors in 84 communities across Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming are selling registrations and Invasive Species Stickers.
- Not all vendors can provide a sticker at the moment of purchase, but you will obtain a receipt that allows you to go and play. Some outlets sell some, but not all, of the registration products, so please check the listings.
3. Buy by Phone
Call 1-888-922-6743 and a service representative will help you with the transaction.
- Agents are available seven days a week, Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., Mountain Standard Time (MST), and Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., MST.
Stuck? Please call for assistance. You are welcome to call — 1-888-922-6743 for assistance — but please know we sometimes experience wait times during periods of high call volumes. The help email is usually the best option.
