ATV Loading, Towing and Reversing


ATV riders and operators who have completed the EASI Rider basic course can book the QVC GLTR module. Training is provided at UK centres and can, in certain circumstances, be arranged at the customer’s premises.
Successful candidates will be issued with a certificate, which may fulfil their HSE compliancy, depending on their individual company’s risk assessment.
The QVC GLTR module can either be taken on the same day as the EASI Rider course or as a standalone option at a later date, providing they have taken the EASI Rider course previously.
The GLTR module is conducted by an EASI qualified instructor and includes:

Introduction and legalities

Discussion about the structure, aims and objectives of the module including an explanation and discussion about the legislation and regulations that apply to employers and employees in their everyday working environment (HASAW and PUWER).


Appropriate riding techniques are demonstrated and then practised in the ability to reverse an ATV.

Loading Your ATV

This session involves sourcing and identifying individual machine-recommended front, rear and combined loading weights. Information and demonstrations show how to calculate maximum load weights as well as how to distribute and secure carrying loads. Candidates can then load their individual machine and practise different riding techniques to experience the effects and different handling characteristics.

Towing Trailers

Load, tow and tongue weights are all identified, discussed and calculated during this session. The distribution and security of loads in the trailer as well as the safe hitching and effect on different handling techniques are all employed and practised. Reversing with a trailer techniques are also demonstrated and practised.

Trail Ride

Slope assessment, risk assessment, rider ability, machine capability, loads and additional machine equipment are some of the factors which may affect an operator’s decision on where and when they choose to operate their equipment. During this important session candidates will be taken to different and altering terrains, where they will be able to establish the recommended hill riding techniques as prescribed for their individual machine, and see how these techniques can be put into practice, as illustrated by their EASI Instructor.

Where an ATV is used for work, employers may find that EASI training courses can fulfil their HSE compliancy, depending on their individual company’s risk assessment.
