Welcome to rideATVoregon

Since 2009 safety laws have been in effect for operating quads and three-wheel ATVs (Class I ATVs) and off-road motorcycles (Class III ATVs) on lands open to public use. (See chart below for age-related timelines.) In order to make training as convenient as possible, the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department now offers this free safety education program and certification online on this website.

SAFETY TRAINING EXEMPTION: Safety training isn't mandatory for riders using an ATV or off-road motorcycle for farming, agriculture, forestry, nursery, Christmas tree growing operations or when riding on private land.

Free Training Online in Three Easy Steps

1. Study and pass the online test on this website. A student can expect to spend between one and two hours for the entire process.
2. We'll mail you a plastic, wallet-sized All-Terrain Vehicle Safety Education Card approximately 30 days after you pass the test (You can print a 30-day temporary education card immediately after you get a 'pass' confirmation).
3. Carry the ATV safety education card with you whenever you operate a Class I or Class III ATV on lands open for public use.

NOTE: Youth 15 and under (under 16) have the additional requirement to get hands-on training. At the completion of this on-line safety course your child can print a Certificate of Completion allowing them to practice riding for 180 days, giving them plenty of time to find and complete a training course.

There is no minimum age to take the online course, though some children may have a difficult time with the course material. We strongly encourage parents to go through the course materials and test with their child/children. Parents who participate and who pass the test will receive their safety card as well. Even parents who choose not to take the test usually find the course both informative and enjoyable.

No Internet?

If someone does not have access to the internet or for some other reason is physically unable to take the on-line course, please have them call our ATV hotline toll free at 877-772-3359 (877-7SAFELY) for an equivalency course application.
