ATV SAFETY

with Recreational Safety Division Representative

Price not available More Info

Riding an ATV can be a great way to enjoy the outdoors, whether it's in your own back yard, or exploring on the thousands of miles of trails available in Maine. ATVs (including UTVs and off-road motorcycles) can also be useful around the woodlot or farm and let's face it, they're simply fun to ride! It's important to ride safely, responsibly, and to be prepared before you go. Many ATV trails reside on private land. Respecting these generous private landowners by riding responsibly is critical to maintaining trail access. Educating yourself before you go is an important component of being a safe and responsible offroad operator. Youth ages 10 to under 16, must successfully complete an approved ATV Safety Certification course to legally operate on land other than their own. Anyone 16 years of age or older is encouraged t o take the course to be educated and prepared for safe riding. The ATVSafety Course is available in two different formats: online and in-person. Students 12 and older can complete the Official Maine ATV/Snowmobile Safety course online at offroad-ed.com/maine. The cost to register for the online course is $34.95. Upon successful completion of the online course, students will receive their Maine ATV/Snowmobile Safety Certification card.
