The ATV manufacturers believe training can improve both riding skills and the knowledge that riders have towards safe ATV use. Unfortunately the majority of riders injured on ATVs are experienced, but very few have completed a training course.  


The FCAI manufacturers have developed an on-line course to outline the potential risks to riders, and also to introduce a safe approach system to enable both new and existing riders to reduce risks. This 30 minute course is followed by a 20 question quiz that establishes participant knowledge and understanding of the issues.  A certificate can be printed off upon successful completion.

Rider Training

Having good skills, knowing the limitations of you and your machine, and being able to recognise risks and hazards are the vital skills covered in a rider training course.

Both Honda and Yamaha provide high quality ATV rider training courses, and many other accredited providers can assist with your training needs.
