LAS VEGAS — Off-roading enthusiasts in Nevada can learn about Off-Highway Vehicle registration, the OHV grant program, and access motorized trail maps at the newly launched website OffRoadNevada.org.
The Nevada Commission on Off-Highway Vehicles site features videos of Nevada residents explaining how they participate responsibly in off-road recreation by registering their vehicles, riding safely, respecting designated trails, and being prepared when travelling far away from local or emergency services.
Motorized trail maps are presented in digital format to show where off-road trails exist in Nevada on public lands. Visitors to the website can also find information regarding the program which provides grants to fund Off-Highway Vehicle related projects
An off-highway vehicle (OHV) is defined as a motor vehicle designed primarily for off-highway and all terrain use. The term includes, but is not limited to: all-terrain vehicle (ATV), off-highway motorcycle (OHM), dune buggy, snowmobile, utility vehicle (UTV) also known as side-by-side, or any other vehicle used on public lands for recreation.
Off-Highway Vehicle registration is required in Nevada. Nearly all off-highway vehicles greater than 70cc, and 1976 or newer, must be registered and display a registration decal to operate legally in the state.
