Course Outline

The following equipment is required to operate an OHV in Arizona:

  • Brakes
  • Eye protection
  • Rearview mirror
  • Lighted headlight and taillights, if operated between one half-hour after sunset and one half-hour before sunrise
  • A muffler or noise dissipating device that prevents sound above 96 decibels
  • A United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)–approved spark arrestor device
  • For those under 18, a properly fitted and fastened U.S. DOT–approved helmet

Sand dunes and certain areas designated by a land managing agency may require a safety flag. If required, the flag must be at least 6 x 12 inches, attached to the OHV, and fly at least 8 feet above the surface of the level ground.
