IC 14-8-2-185

According to Indiana law, an ORV is a motor-driven vehicle capable of cross-country travel without benefit of a road and on or immediately over land, water, snow, ice, marsh, swampland, or other natural terrain.

The term “ORV” includes:

  • A multi-wheel drive or low-pressure tire vehicle
  • An amphibious machine
  • A ground-effect air-cushion vehicle
  • Other forms of transportation that are powered by a means other than muscle or wind

Above all, remember these facts.

  • ORVs are designed for off-road use only.
  • Driving an ORV on paved surfaces can be hazardous because of handling issues.
  • Riding on paved roads is a leading cause of ORV-related fatalities.
  • Carry a passenger only if your machine is designed to carry another person; most are not.
