ATV Permits

ATV permits in Oregon

An ATV Operating Permit (sticker) is required for your machine if you are operating it on lands open to ATV use. The price is $10 and is valid for two years.

Each permit represents the number of ATVs in Oregon and the appropriate fuel taxes are placed in the ATV Grant Fund. About $75 of fuel taxes are applied to every Permit purchased in Oregon.

These funds are put back on the ground to keep your riding areas open and in good condition.

There are two ways to purchase a Permit:

Buy Online

Go to our State Park online store to purchase. Upon purchase, you will receive a temporary permit in the form of a PDF file that you can print out, or save to your smartphone. It is good for 14 days.

Find an onsite agent

There are approximately 160 private ATV operating permit agents located throughout the state and several State Parks Offices to purchase the permit you can place on your machine.

Oregon accepts permits from other states which accept our permits, including California, Washington and Nevada. Other states such as Idaho, Utah and Arizona do not accept Oregon permits, therefore we cannot accept theirs. For a compete list, see the "Oregon Riders getting out-of-state permits" link below. Out of state residents can purchase an Oregon permit for $10 which is valid for two years.

These funds help provide statewide funding for off-highway vehicle (OHV) recreation projects such as operation and maintenance, law enforcement, emergency medical services, land acquisition, planning, and development in Oregon's OHV recreation areas.
