Important: Age restrictions, special licenses, and other requirements for all-terrain vehicles vary from state to state. Before heading out on your OHV, please consult your local regulations. When choosing a place to explore, be sure that you can do so legally. As some states have strict laws about off-roading on public land, confirm that the area is OHV accessible while making your plans.
