Regarding who can operate / drive an ATV or UTV…Wisconsin regulations require all ATV/UTV operators born on or after Jan. 1, 1988 to have a state-issued ATV operator’s license. WI generally recognizes ATV licenses issued by other states. Runamuk Rides requires that all operators be at least 16 years of age, have a motor vehicle (auto) driver’s license, and if required, a state-issued ATV operator’s license. We encourage all of our guests, whether required by age or not, to complete a safety course. Visit http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/atv/ for more details.
