Course Outline

OHVs are not to be operated on a paved highway in the state of Nevada unless:

  • The section of highway is clearly marked and designated for OHV use.
  • For the purposes of crossing the highway perpendicular to the flow of traffic.
  • For the purpose of loading or unloading the off-highway vehicle onto or off of another vehicle or trailer.

Most federal and state agencies provide travel maps that indicate where OHV use is allowed. Before riding your OHV, always contact the local land managing authority for current trail maps and riding information. A list of various land managing agencies can be found at the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) website or the Off Road Nevada website.

  • Currently registered OHVs may be operated only on public lands, roads, or trails that are signed or designated for OHV use.
  • OHVs may be operated on private property with the consent of the owner or person in charge. Always obtain permission before entering any private property.
  • The U.S. Forest Service, the BLM, and other federal and state land managing agencies determine where OHV use is permitted on their lands. The operator is responsible for knowing which routes are open to OHVs.
  • Designated wilderness areas are off-limits to all mechanized travel.

Never carry more passengers than the OHV is designed for and never allow a passenger who is too small to sit in a passenger seat to ride in the OHV.
