What is Oregon's OHV Youth Safety Law? As of January 1, 2012 Oregon law requires all off-road motorcycle and ATV operators ages 15 and under to complete a hands-on evaluation course to ride legally on all Oregon public lands.
What is a Youth Safety Evaluation? A Youth Safety Evaluation is a one-time, hands-on skills demonstration to evaluate a youth's ability to safely control and fit their OHV. The youth's on-line Safety Education Card will be endorsed after he/she has passed the evaluation. Parents will need to bring their child/children prepared to ride with the vehicle and proper protective gear.
Does my child have to complete the Online Safety Course first? Yes. Oregon ATV Safety Education is a 2-step process. Youths must first pass the Online Course (Step 1) and receive a temporary Safety Education Card. That card number will be submitted by OMRA YSEP once the youth passes a hands-on evaluation (Step 2). Then a permanent card will be sent to you by Oregon State Parks and Recreation.
Why are out-of-state fees $65 instead of $20? Evaluation fees for Oregon residents are only $20. Out-of-state, $65. Why? OMRA YSEP's lowered cost for Oregonians is made possible by a per-participant subsidy from Oregon's ATV Fund, which comes from Oregon ATV permit and gas tax dollars. That's why Oregon residents, in a sense, have a certain entitlement to a discounted evaluation fee for their kids.
