ATV SAFETY INSTITUTE

  

The ATV Safety Institute's (ASI) primary goal is to promote the safe and responsible use of ATVs, thereby reducing accidents and injuries that may result from improper ATV operation by the rider. ASI developed a hands-on training course that introduces basic techniques for riding an all-terrain vehicle. The course also covers protective gear, local laws, finding places to ride, and environmental concerns.

ASI also offers a safety training E-Course.
