Off-Highway Vehicles

OHV Education


Youth ATV/Motorcycle and Snowmobile Certification

Your safety is our No. 1 concern. Utah law requires youth, ages 8 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 8 to operate an OHV or 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
