Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle Association

AB 1595 in California. AB 1595 was developed by adapting ROHVA’s Model State Legislation, published since 2008, in the context of California’s existing off-highway vehicle (OHV) regulatory scheme. AB 1595 created ROVs as a separate class of OHV with an engine size not greater than 1,000 cc. The ROV provisions of AB 1595 expressly do not apply to vehicles known as sand buggies, dune buggies, ATVs or jeeps.

The RBDC is a partial-day program that has approximately three hours of riding time that includes between-exercise discussions. The RBDC includes six closed range exercises and up to seven optional open trail experiences, depending on terrain that is available. Also, participants use the ROV Tips & Practice Guide booklet (a takeaway document) that provides opportunities for discussion.

The RBDC is a training opportunity that provides current and experienced ROV users to learn and practice basic skills and techniques. It addresses basic operation and emphasizes safety awareness related specifically to ROV operation.
