Quad (Class I) and Motorcycle (Class III) Evaluation Courses

The purpose of this training course is to evaluate the skill level of riders and to replicate trail riding obstacles and evasive maneuvers they might encounter for safe riding while on state and public lands.   
Our course is 2 hours long and emphasizes safe riding and proper technique.
Our course covers a safety course review, major controls, rider bike fit, body and head position, starting and stopping, and evasive moves.
The course also includes pre-ride inspections, and training on loading and unloading, riding in groups and hand signals for trail riding.
