Quick guide to ATVing in Ontario

What is an ATV

An all-terrain vehicle (ATV) is a motorized recreational vehicle with four large, low-pressure tires that can traverse rough, muddy and uneven terrain. Most sports models feature straddle seating and handlebar steering similar to a bike. Generally larger, UTVs (utility terrain vehicles) are built and used for work purposes, often with cabins, car-like seating and steering wheels.
