I was wondering if the age restriction stickers you see on ATVs is just a recommendation or if it's a law?

8-9 year olds can ride state trails, but are limited to 70cc or less. ALL riders 8-16 years old must have completed a safety course and carry proof of completion of the course with them.

ATV dealers must abide by the age recommendations when selling quads (this is set by the manufacturers not the state)

And as BigBear has stated the only restrictions, about riding,(cc wise from the state) are 8&9 y/o are limited to 70 cc or less.

With one note....the 8-16 sounds confusing... a 16 y/o does not need the certification.

The certification has nothing to do with state trails....if a child ages 8-15 wants to ride off of the property that is owned by their PARENTS, they must have a safety certification, this includes private trails as well as state trails, and even grandpa or uncle Joes farm.
