UTV, ATV, & SxS Training Classes
The 4x4 Training Center of Vermont provides ongoing UTV, ATV, and Side by Side training opportunities for businesses and individuals. Commonly packaged alongside Off-Road Basics or as a full day immersive experience, these classes are designed to meet and exceed basic safety training requirements while also offering a thrilling and informative day on the trail. These classes are perfect for individuals that enjoy recreational trail riding, a family that has recently purchased an ATV or UTV, or a business that relies on these machines to get them from point A to point B, all in a days work.
TAKE THE RISK OUT OF HAVING FUN:
Too many people simply jump on an ATV and go. The Consumer Protection Safety Commission reports 93,000+ ATV related emergency room visits in their last reporting year, 2017. It is your responsibility to ensure the people you ride with, ride safely, mitigate negligent behavior, and reduce your overall risk. UTV/ATVs are amazingly capable and useful machines for traveling in remote areas, but proper training and practice is essential to the safety of individuals and businesses.

- Properly prepare individuals and your machines for a day of fun.
- Control UTV/ATVs in a variety of environments.
- Understand the differences between the two machines.
- Understand proper weight distribution and prevent rollovers.
- When & how to engage differential controls.
- Safe transmission, brake, & throttle operation.
- Understand the law and etiquette of UTV/ATV use in our area.
FROM THE CLASSROOM TO THE FIELD
This course starts with a classroom session to make sure students understand the basic mechanics and potential dangers of working with these machines. The bulk of this course is performed in the field to prioritize the importance of practice and “seat time” in getting people comfortable and capable. Under the watchful eye of our expert instructors, students will progress, gradually increasing their skills from slow speed and flat ground maneuvers to operating on extremely rough terrain.
