ATV Safety Advice

Parental supervision is a key element to a child's safety, and children under the age of 16 must be supervised at all times when operating an ATV. Parents literally hold the key to their children's safety. Every ATV has an ignition key, and when a parent or guardian controls the key, they control the use.

It is important that all riders understand the importance of safe and responsible use of ATVs. Almost 90% of youth ATV-related injury incidents occur when a youth is operating an adult-sized ATV, meaning that the engine size is greater than 90cc (cubic centimetres). Every child under the age of 16 should be supervised and should never be permitted to ride an adult-sized ATV.

Statistics show that over 90% of all ATV-related fatalities are the result of warned-against behaviours. The European ATV Safety Institute has ten Golden Rules of ATV safety that address these behaviours and apply to all riders:

  1. Take an EASI RiderCourse or other approved training.
  2. Always wear an approved helmet, goggles, gloves and other protective gear.
  3. Never ride under the influence of alcohol or other drugs
  4. Avoid paved surfaces when and where ever possible.
  5. Never ride on public roads unless your machine is a Quadricycle that has been   specifically manufactured for this purpose and complies with the relevant type approval code for that specific model of Quadricycle, and you hold the correct type of Driving License and Insurance.
  6. Read you machines owner's manual and familiarise yourself with the importance of all warning labels displayed on your ATV.
  7. Never carry a passenger unless your machine has been specifically manufactured to do so.
  8. Ride an ATV that's right for your age and experience.
  9. Supervise riders younger than 16; ATVs are NOT toys.
  10. Ride only in designated riding areas at a safe speed. Always make sure you have land owner's permission
