DWR: New OHV Rule Going Into Effect In January

by | Dec 2, 2022 | News | 0 comments

As Utah prepares to implement the new OHV rule on public lands, the Division of Wildlife Resources is educating the public on what to expect. “Beginning January 2023, anyone operating an off-highway vehicle (OHV) on public lands in Utah will be required to complete an online education course,” shares DWR Conservation Outreach Manager Tonya Kieffer-Selby. “Intended to reduce conflicts between OHV riders and residents, and reduce environmental impacts, the course should take 30 minutes or less to complete, and will be offered for free. If successful, this program could serve as a model for other states.”  Operators under the age of 18 will be required to have a youth OHV education certificate in order to operate an OHV on public land, road or trail. Operators 18 years of age or older will be required to have an approved adult OHV education certificate. For more information, visit recreation.utah.gov/off-highway-vehicles/
