ROV Safety Rules


The following ROV Safety Rules focus on safe and responsible ROV use, and were developed to help drivers and passengers avoid crashes and injuries.

  1. Always fasten your seat belt, wear a helmet and other protective gear and keep all parts of your body inside the ROV.

  2. Avoid paved surfaces. ROVs are designed to be operated off-highway.

  3. Drive only in designated areas, at a safe speed, and use care when turning and crossing slopes.

  4. Never drive or ride under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

  5. Never drive an ROV unless you’re 16 or older and have a valid driver’s license. ROVs are not toys.

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

  7. Read and follow the operator’s manual and warning labels.

  8. Take a hands-on ROV Basic DriverCourseSM and the free online E-Course. Visit or call 866.267.2751
