Oregon will honor off-road permits from the following states:
These states currently have an OHV registration program that can issue a plate or a decal (or both) that serves as their ATV Permit to operate on or off-road. This plate may or may not make the OHV street legal to be operated on public roads and highways. Oregon recognizes other state’s plates or ATV Permits in lieu of the Oregon ATV Permit when operating off-road.
Note: Not every state has replied to our request for information. If your homestate is not listed, please contact the agency in charge of off road vehicles to find out if they have a similar permit system and if they honor Oregon permits.
