WATV Information

In July 2013, Washington enacted a law requiring license plates on All Terrain Vehicles, House Bill 1632 (HB1632). The bill creates a new class of recreational vehicle (a wheeled all-terrain vehicle / WATV) and provides motorized access to public lands while promoting responsible riding practices. This page should serve as a resource to provide the necessary information regarding WATV’s and will be a work in progress. If you have information to contribute to this page, or see information that needs correcting, please email us, info@waatva.org.
