The Handbook of Indiana Off-Road Vehicle Laws and Safe Operating Procedures for ATVs and Snowmobiles

ORV Basics

An ORV is not a toy. It’s a vehicle built primarily for off-road recreation. ORVs can provide hours of safe, enjoyable off-road riding. But ORVs also can be dangerous if you don’t understand your vehicle or know proper riding procedures.

Safe and Responsible

Safety on Indiana off-road areas is the responsibility of everyone. Use the handbook to familiarize yourself with the steps to make your 4-wheeler outings safe and enjoyable.

It’s the Law!

Indiana law enforcement officers enforce state ORV regulations to make your off-road experience safe and pleasant. Cooperate with them by following the state ORV laws and guidelines in this handbook.
