The EASI Rider Course is an interactive, hands-on learning experience that is both practical and enjoyable. As well as teaching safe riding techniques, the course covers safety clothing and protective equipment, pre-ride inspections, risk assessment and environmental issues.
Riders are expected to supply their own ATV's for training and for children aged 6 - 16 they MUST be riding machines appropriate for their age as laid out in the ATV (Safety) Regulations 1989 (No. 2288).
The EASI Rider course caters for a maximum number of 8 adult riders (or 6 children if aged under 16 years), each of whom receives a Rider Course Handbook. The programme lasts around four and a half hours and consists of 16 lessons, as follows:
1 Introduction to the ATV Rider Course, protective clothing and equipment and pre-ride inspections of ATVs (known as T-CLOC)
2 Range signals, rules and warm up exercises
3 Controls and starting the engine
4 Starting out, shifting gears and braking

16 Wrap up and review
The EASI Rider Course ends with a wrap up and review session where Student Performance Evaluation Forms are distributed to all riders, detailing any areas and skills that require further work and practice.
