"The best safety training is through the ATV Safety Institute's hands-on ATV RiderCourse, available for adults and children ages 6 and up. If riders want to get started right away with training, the ASI also offers free online E-Courses. Riders will learn about personal and trail safety, proper riding techniques, trail etiquette and more.
