This was mentioned in passing on another thread. I'm surprised that there has not or is not currently a PR push to advertise this requirement. Almost like they want to ticket as many as possible.

Utah already requires those under 18 to have a certificate and training. They have for quite some time. Most manufactures require dealers to do a little introduction to handling ATV/UTV's before leaving the dealership. Utah used to believe that those with a current drivers license for driving on a public road in a regular motor vehicle were smart enough to drive ATV/UTV's responsibly. Now they don't.
I honestly doubt that it will change anyone's behavior but we can always wish.

To transfer a title you need the old title signed with a release. The DMV will have to verify that the VIN on the old title matches the vehicle. First year you pay sales tax. After that property tax.

And it's supposed to be a once in a lifetime course. Yeah, just like the Swan course was. I bet it will get updated and we will be doing it every year. The questions in the course should offend anyone with the slightest amount of intelligence. I mean nobody needs to tell me to bury a turd, or that a 62" wide machine won't fit through a 50" wide gate.

I keep reading on the OHV pages that something educational had to be done before we lose riding areas. I agree, something educational does need to be done, but this isn't it.
Yet I see multiple instances of turds and toilet paper alongside trails. Not to mention signs that many have gone around 50" gates or have made trails wider by going around obstacles. I don't even want to mention plastic water bottles. They are more prevalent than the dreaded beer can.

People are slobs. And no this is not going make a difference.

The fact that you have to have it with any ATV/UTV you drive I'll have it laminated and in my wallet along with a picture on my phone.

After trying and failing to help a lady who dropped her phone off a ski lift that had all her ID, CC, room reservation, flight information and boarding pass on it I try not to put all the eggs in one basket.

It should not be the responsibility of anyone that is a renter of OHV’s to have any part of that educational process and should not slow anything down.
The rentee should have that burden 100% and should not even be involved in the rental process.
I just think as a service to customers they would reference the requirement to have a permit to operate the rental. Very little work to add a link to their website to direct the customer to the test.

As the law states....
312 (c) Except as provided in Subsection (2)(d), a person may not rent an off-highway
313 vehicle to an individual until the individual that will operate the off-highway vehicle has
314 completed the off-highway vehicle safety education and training program described in
315 Subsection (1).
