The EASI Rider Course is an interactive, hands-on learning experience that is both practical and enjoyable. As well as teaching safe riding techniques, the course covers safety clothing and protective equipment, pre-ride inspections, risk assessment and environmental issues.
Riders are expected to supply their own ATV’s for training and for children aged 6 – 16 they MUST be riding machines appropriate for their age as laid out in the ATV (Safety) Regulations 1989 (No. 2288).
