This presentation is not designed to replace an actual hands-on ATV Safety Training Class that I strongly encourage you to take.


What is the ATV Safety Institute?

  • ATV RiderCourse
  • The ATV RiderCourse provides a fast-paced, half-day, hands-on training session which includes pre-ride inspection, starting and stopping, quick turns, hill riding, emergency stopping and swerving and riding over obstacles.
  • You'll also learn about protective gear, local regulations, places to ride and environmental concerns.
  • Bring your friends and family, and meet new friends to ride with.

Can I send my kids?

  • Definitely.
  • The ATV RiderCourse is a great way to get your kids off to a safe start.
  • A parent must be present for riders under 12. A parent should be present for riders under 16.

How much does it cost?

  • Maybe nothing if you recently purchased a new ATV.
  • Call ATV Enrollment Express toll-free at
  • 1-800-887-2887
  • to find out if you are eligible for free training.
  • If you are not eligible for free training, you may take the ATV RiderCourse for a small fee.

Do I Use My Own ATV?

  • Yes.
  • If you don't have one yet, you may be able to make specific arrangements to have an ATV available at the training site.
  • Make sure your ATV is the proper size for the individual taking the training. (See the ATV Quiz at

What Should I Bring?

  • You must wear the proper riding gear at all times during training. Bring the following:
  • DOT-compliant motorcycle helmet
  • Goggles or face shield
  • Over-the-ankle boots
  • ATV or motorcycle gloves
  • Long pants
  • Long sleeve shirt or jacket
  • For more on proper riding gear, check out the working rider and recreational rider.

What is the riding area like?

  • Riding areas around the country differ somewhat, but they all include specific Stations.
  • At each station on the riding range, you will learn specific skills.
  • For an idea of what you will do at each station, see our ATV RiderCourse Riding Range.

Sounds Great! How do I enroll?

  • Call the ATV Enrollment Express toll-free at 1-800-887-2887.
  • They can tell you where the nearest ATV RiderCourse is and enroll you on the spot.
  • Or, visit and click on "Online Enrollment" to enroll in a half-day, hands-on course.
  • You can also enroll in one of our new online courses.
  • ATV enthusiasts can take our online courses in preparation for taking ASI’s half-day, hands-on ATV RiderCourse.
  • These online courses can also be used as a refresher after the hands-on course.

Over 3,498 people, including many children, have died in accidents associated with ATVs since 2004

Are ATVs dangerous?

Could they have been prevented?

The right choices in and along railroad rights-of-way. . “STAY OFF, STAY AWAY, STAY ALIVE”.
