Can You Ride Four Wheelers in City Limits?




If you’re a fan of all-terrain vehicles (ATVs or quads), you may be curious whether it’s legal to ride them in your city limits. Here are some important details you should be aware of before hitting the trail for some adventure.

As with most off-road vehicles, state laws vary when it comes to riding on the road. Regardless of what the law says, safety should always come first.

Age Restrictions

When riding a four wheeler within city limits, age requirements can differ. In some cases, you must be at least 14 years old to operate either a snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle (ATV). If you’re under 16, someone must accompany you who is 18 and holds an valid all-terrain vehicle permit. Furthermore, some states require you to complete a state-approved safety course before operating an ATV; especially important if you’re under 18, as crashes could cause permanent harm to both body and brain.
