ATV Safety Institute Again Offers Free ATV Safety Training
The ATV Safety Institute will provide free rider training for the second straight year during ATV Safety Week this spring. The ASI is again working with partners across America who will be volunteering to provide free ATV RiderCourses and other safety education June 6–14.
“The first step toward safe ATV riding is taking the ASI RiderCourse, and we’re making it available to adults, kids and families all over the country early in the riding season,” says Cam Arnold, ASI’s vice president of rider training. “ATV Safety Week is about promoting the eight Golden Rules for safe riding, and we can think of no better way than to offer our class at no charge to participants. We invite everyone with an ATV to meet our Instructors, have some fun, and learn how to ride ATVs safely.”
The ATV RiderCourse is free for anyone who meets the age requirements and signs up during ATV Safety Week. Riders can find the closest training sites by going to ATVSafety.org and clicking on the ATV Safety Week logo. Additional locations will be added as they are confirmed and the most current list can be found on the training page. Riders should then call 800-887-2887 to sign up for a class.
