ATV Definitions Update (2023)

Rule Timeline Adopted.png


In 2019, a provision included in HB 2592 enacted by the legislature, changed the definition of Class IV All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV). The definition of ATVs, located in ORS.801.191-194, was changed again in 2023 by SB 889. The statutory definitions, including language describing each class is used as a reference in OAR 736-004-0015. Under the proposed rule amendment, language describing each class of ATV would be removed and the rule would refer simply to statute. Due to frequent changes made to the definitions of ATV’s, changing our rules to simply refer to the statute and not include descriptions of each class will allow us to maintain a greater level of accuracy.

A link to the proposed rule change can be found in the documents below.
