About Oregon ATV Safety

Oregon ATV Safetytm is a youth rider endorsement program developed by the Oregon 4-H Youth Development Program, the College of Health and Human Sciences, and the Oregon State University Extension Service. Oregon ATV SafetyTM is a response to the rising number of ATV related injuries and deaths and Oregon Administrative Rules. The Oregon Administrative Rule requires youth, 15 years of age and younger, to receive a hands-on endorsement of their mental and physical ATV riding skills. Starting January 1, 2012, this age group will be required to possess an endorsed All-Terrain Safety Education Card.
