The ATV RiderCourse is exciting and fun!  No matter your experience level, you’ll come away a better rider.

The ATV RiderCourse is made up of a 2 hour on-line e-Course and a 2-2.5 hour hands-on training session, the S-Course. In other words, it’s an exciting ATV riding school, geared toward both kids and adults. You start in the comfort of your home on-line and learn safe riding strategies, pre-ride inspection, and demonstrations of proper riding posture. You’ll also learn about protective gear (like a proper ATV helmet), local regulations, places to ride, and how to protect the environment. Then, working with a Licensed Instructor you complete hands-on exercises to help you learn or improve starting and stopping, quick turns, hill riding, emergency stopping and swerving, and riding over obstacles safely.
