About the Study Guide

You are looking at the North Dakota Offroad Rider’s Ed Study Guide. At the present time, you cannot obtain off-road education certification from Offroad Ed. However, you can use this Study Guide as a resource to learn more about off-road safety.

The following are leading causes of injury and fatal accidents:

  • Driving an ATV on a paved surface. ATVs are designed for off-road use only and handle poorly on pavement.
  • Riding double on an ATV that isn’t designed to carry a passenger. Most ATVs are designed for only one rider.
  • Letting inexperienced operators ride without an experienced riding partner.
  • Riding without adult supervision.
  • Performing dangerous stunts and maneuvers.
  • Operating in unfamiliar areas or terrain.
  • Failing to observe state laws and local ordinances.
