Typically a 1 day training course and assessment dependent upon experience.  A certificate will be issued upon successful completion.

Sit-astride all-terrain vehicles (ATVs, also known as Quad Bikes or Quadbikes) are incredibly versatile machines. Their flexibility means they can work with a range of attachments, including trailers, sprayers and spreaders. That makes them popular across many agricultural businesses. However that popularity comes with the potential for danger. Without proper training, serious accidents can occur. There is a balanced mix of theory and practice, starting with a detailed look at key health and safety issues. You will also learn the finer points of route planning and understand exactly what the vehicle can do followed by a practical, hands on session. You will be taught basic manoeuvres and how to manage a bike on different and challenging terrains. Operating the vehicle with loads and trailers will also be covered.
