What to Expect When Taking the Course
Learning Step by Step
This official training program is developed to meet the standards for ATV rider safety education established by the state of Oregon.
To help you improve your off-roading skills and to prepare you for the final exam, the course is broken down into 8 easy-to-understand units that you can complete at your own pace:

You’ll need to score 80% or greater on the unit quiz before moving on to the next unit. If you don’t pass a unit quiz, don’t worry. You’ll just go back and take the quiz again.
After completing all units, you’ll proceed directly to the online Certification Exam.
