Effective January 1, 2014, all operators of Class I (ATV) and III (Motorcycle) vehicles must have their OPRD ATV Safety Education Card.
Back in 2009, mandatory training began as a requirement for Class I and Class III operators on public lands. It was phased-in for different age groups starting with youth under 16, and adult supervisors of those youth. For adults, all you need to complete is the online training to receive your OPRD Safety Education Card.
The OPRD FREE course can be found at www.rideatvoregon.org and provides safety tips for riding in Oregon's dunes, desert and forests as well as training on trail etiquette, riding ethics and environmental concerns.
This course is Step 1 of 2 for youth under 16 who must also attend a hands-on course to get a new, endorsed, card.
Once obtained, the ATV Safety Education Card is good for life.
