What is an ATV?

An All-Terrain Vehicle, sometimes called an Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) or Off-Road Vehicle (ORV), is defined as a motorized vehicle with two or more wheels that is designed to be used for off-road driving. In most cases, these vehicles are not legal to drive on highways or roads.

Why Should I Get Insurance for my ATV?

The very nature of riding an ATV makes it inherently dangerous. California is one of 10 states that together account for more than 42 percent of off-highway vehicle deaths. In 2020, more than 112,000 injuries attributed to OHVs were treated in US emergency rooms. Having the proper training and using your ATV in a responsible way will go a long way to making sure you don’t become an ATV statistic.

In addition to the right training and usage, buying insurance for your ATV means that if something does happen, you’ll have financial protection to help you pay for damages and injuries. A lot of ATV accidents occur when an ATV hits a stationary object, such as a tree. Most ATV accidents only involve the one vehicle. Being proactive when it comes to operating your ATV is just smart.

What Types of ATV Insurance are Available for Californians?

All the same types you see with regular car insurance or motorcycle insurance: liability in the form of bodily injury and property damage; collision and comprehensive; uninsured motorist coverage; and medical payments. Let’s take a closer look:

  • Bodily injury liability insurance: This coverage pays for injuries or deaths associated with an accident involving your ATV, plus legal costs if you get sued.
  • Property damage liability insurance: This coverage pays for damage you cause to someone else’s property while on your ATV.
  • Collision insurance: This coverage helps pay for damages your ATV sustains in a collision with another vehicle or if it overturns.
  • Comprehensive insurance: This coverage helps pay for damages sustained in ways other than a collision, such as weather events (hail), fire or if your ATV is stolen.

Medical insurance: This additional medical coverage helps pay for injuries sustained by someone riding your ATV. You may not feel you need all of this insurance on something you only ride in the woods on the occasional weekend. But remember, it’s better to have protection and not need it, than to not have protection and need it.
