Off-Highway Vehicles

OHV Education

Youth ATV/Motorcycle and Snowmobile Certification

Your safety is our number one concern. Utah law requires youth, ages eight to 15 (or until they get their state issued driver license), to complete a Utah Division of Parks and Recreation off-highway vehicle (OHV) or snowmobile education course before operating on public lands, roads or trails. It is illegal for any child under the age of eight to operate an OHV or a snowmobile on any public land.

The online youth education course fee is $30 per student and must be passed only once. The OHV certification covers ATVs, off-highway motorcycles (OHMs) and side-by-side ATVs (type II ATVs or UTVs) and the snowmobile certification covers only snowmobiles. When the test has been passed, you will have the opportunity to print out a temporary operator license that will be valid immediately; you will then receive your permanent operator license in the mail.

Education classes teach:

  • safe riding
  • proper machine sizing
  • weight distribution
  • responsible and ethical riding
  • proper handling and shifting
  • riding within your ability
