Although our interactive eCourses can help riders of all ages and experience levels enhance and refresh their knowledge, there is no substitute for the real-world experience gained through the hands-on ATV RiderCourse. This all-encompassing ATV riding school teaches you important safety tips, proper riding techniques, and other key information in riding your ATV safely. Nonetheless, our eCourses are a great way to improve your skills.


The ATV Safety Institute’s eCourses are free, self-paced, interactive online training programs that address basic ATV safety principles and include:

  • Riding-experience videos from a first-person point of view
  • Animation
  • Interactive learning exercises and quizzes to self-test knowledge gained

Courses Overview

ATV eCourse

This course is the best place for adults and teens to start on their path to understanding all-terrain vehicles and safe riding strategies. The course includes videos, pictures, and interactive games to make it a fun and effective learning experience. During the course, users take progress quizzes and receive a certificate upon successful completion. The entire course takes approximately 2.5 hours to complete. You can stop at any point and your progress will be saved so that you can return and pick up where you left off. Completing this ATV eCourse is required before you can participate in the ATV RiderCourse S-Course hands-on training.

Coaching Young Riders

This course is designed for parents and caregivers supervising younger ATV riders. The adult and youth should take the course together for best results. The course is free and completion does NOT make you eligible to take hands-on training (take the ATV eCourse above).

State Certification

Some states require riders to complete an approved safety course to operate an ATV. To receive your state certificate, simply select the appropriate state-specific Basic eCourse when you enroll, and upon successful completion you will be sent a certification card.

There is no cost to take the eCourse – but there is a $25 fee for the state certificate.
