Re: Free ATV Safety Certification Training Continues At ISDRA

Is preregistration required? Sometimes dune trips need flexability.

Can adults take the training as well? Good to know what your kids are being taught.

Will the mfg's pay for adult training? They fund training for ATV owners.

Just wanted to know.
