Off-Highway motorcycle (OHM)

On October 1, 2016 new Off-Highway Motorcycle (OHM) laws became effective in Wisconsin. What is an OHM? An OHM is a 2-wheeled motor vehicle that is straddled by the operator, that is equipped with handlebars, and that is designed for use off a highway, regardless of whether it is also designed for use on a highway. This would include motocross, enduro and dual-sport motorcycles. OHM operators at least age 12 and born after January 1, 1998 are required to possess an OHM Safety certificate to operate an OHM on lands open to public OHM use. This certification will be obtained solely by completing an internet OHM Safety Course. There will be no classroom course for OHM Safety. Current Wisconsin ATV Safety certificate holders may complete an internet, OHM Safety short course to obtain their OHM Safety certificate. The short course is free of charge. Students requiring both ATV and OHM Safety may complete the online combo course. The combo course has a required fee. More information can be found by visiting the WI DNR website and searching keyword “off-highway motorcycle”.
