A vehicle that was certified for off-road use only may provide one of the following documents as evidence that the vehicle has been legally modified for on-road use so that it can be titled and subsequently registered in Alabama:
a.) Certification from the manufacturer (not the dealer or distributor) that the vehicle has been modified from an off-road use only vehicle to a vehicle that conforms to state and federal safety standards for operation on the public roads and highways.
b.) Certification from the Alabama Department of Public Safety that the vehicle has been modified from an off-road use only vehicle to a vehicle that conforms to state and federal safety standards and can be legally operated on the public roads and highways.
c.) Certificate of conformity from a registered importer (see link below for information concerning registered importers). Note: A certification from a registered importer is only an option for vehicles manufactured outside of the U.S.
This leads me to believe it may be worth looking into again. Anybody tried it lately? Does the Department of Public Safety have requirements that are impossible to meet. That'd be my guess. It's legal, but the requirements are impossible to meet.
