Rider Education Center


Getting Ready for Class

There are a wide variety of courses available. At the basic level you’ll learn about understanding and identifying your vehicle’s primary parts and controls, starting out and stopping smoothly, low-speed steering, turning and backing up, braking, both normal and quick stops, and swerving. At select locations, students will be able to experience open trail exercises to practice the skills and knowledge they have learned in a real off-road environment.



The ROV Basic DriverCourse is a hands-on class, for licensed drivers aged 16 and older, conducted by a certified ROV DriverCoach. Before you enroll in an ROV Basic DriverCourse, please note all students must be at least 16 years of age, hold a valid driver’s license, and have completed the ROHVA E-Course prior to their arrival.


The Open Trail Experience applies skills acquired in the Closed Range Exercise of the ROV Basic DriverCourse to “real-world” terrain under the guidance of a certified ROHVA DriverCoach.

Choosing the Right Gear

Side-by-Side drivers and passengers need to dress right. Number one on the list is a helmet specifically designed to accommodate goggles. A long-sleeved top or jacket can help protect you from both the elements and abrasion. Sturdy over-the-ankle boots should offer good support and traction. Gloves and long pants are next, and it all needs to fit properly. The good news is that there are plenty of choices out there to match your style and your needs.
