It is important for parents to help their youngsters understand and follow the instructions and warnings in the ATVs owner’s manual and on its labels. COHV has introduced the Parents, Youngsters & All-Terrain Vehicles (link to pdf) booklet that is intended to assist parents in determining if your youngster is ready to ride all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). It also provides important safety information and tips on learning to ride.
ATVs are not toys. Proper instruction and practice are important. This booklet will assist parents with information on choosing the correct youth-size model that is recommended for use by your youngster’s age group.
Divided into four parts, adults will be able to:
Part 1: Determine Your Youngster’s Readiness to Ride an ATV
Part 2: Pre-Operating Procedures
Part 3: Operating Procedures
Part 4: Readiness Checklist
Find out where you and your youngster can take the Canadian AQCC Safety Institute (CASI) ATV RiderCourse in your area.
