Do I have to have snowmobile insurance in North Dakota?

I'm moving to North Dakota from Ontario, and I plan to bring my snowmobiles. Do I have to get insurance on them?

“Congrats on the move!
North Dakota does require you to insure your snowmobiles. Like vehicles, snowmobiles in North Dakota have to carry liability insurance. Without it, you can’t operate a snowmobile on any state trails.
The insurance must be in your name and cover any person who has permission to use them. Similar to car insurance, you need to show a law enforcement officer proof of insurance if stopped.
Along with insurance, you’ll also need to register your snowmobile. The registration fee is $50 and can be done online or through a local Department of Transportation website.
If you’re unsure where to get snowmobile insurance, you should start with your car insurance. Most companies offer a variety of recreational vehicle policies, so it should be fairly easy to find.
To get the best deal on insuring both vehicles, try using the Jerry app. We’ll get you free quotes from multiple providers in minutes so that you can simply choose the policy and provider that works best for you. That way, you can get out in the snow knowing that you’re fully covered with the best price possible!”
