Types of ATVs

States often use different terms to define Off Highway Vehicles (OHV) or All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV).

In Oregon, laws were written using the term All-Terrain Vehicle which encompasses all types of vehicles including motorcycles, 3 wheelers, quads, side-by-sides, sand rails, trucks and SUVs.

There are legal definitions for each type of vehicle and the rules can be different for each for things such as age of operator and where each type of vehicle can be driven. See below for the specific rules.

Operators with a suspended or revoked driver's license may not operate any Class of ATV.
