Hands-on Training

Hands-On Training Requirement

There are two types of hands-on courses that satisfy Oregon’s requirements for riders under 16 years of age to get their ATV Safety Education Card:

•    Training courses that assume no previous knowledge or skill on the rider’s part; or,
 

•    Evaluation courses which assess the skills of a rider who feel they are already “trained”.
 

Both types of courses must adhere to Oregon’s minimum standards for training established in Administrative Rule 736-004-0120.
 
Already Trained?
Those who have already received hands-on training via ASI or MSF (or the Canadian Safety Council) and have completed the on-line safety training (above) have already met this requirement and can get a new, endorsed, ATV Safety Education Card at no cost now! Just send us a copy of the card provided by the hands-on instructor with an application and we’ll do the rest.
 
**Click here for the “Training Endorsement Request” form 
**To save information typed into this form, you must have Adobe Reader version 8.0, which is available for free from the link at the bottom of this site.
