Overview

The ATV sit-in course is for anyone who uses or will be using a sit-in ATV for work. For novice or experienced operators this course is designed for operators using conventional or skid steered sit-in ATVs. Sit-in all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) are incredibly versatile machines, making them popular, and vital, tools of the trade for agricultural businesses. But their flexibility means that even the most experienced rider can find themselves in potentially dangerous situations. Without proper training, serious accidents can occur – a fact at the heart of our course and its objectives. New riders will gain the basic skills required to use ATVs effectively. More experienced operators will be able to maximise their abilities to get the very best out of their vehicle.
