Responsible Riders OHV Education
The Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation (IDPR) Responsible Riders course provides a building block style learning environment. Your learning begins after registering for a specific course date and location. 

A student reference guide will be mailed once your registration has been received and will provide the necessary information to pass the pre-course written test. After the test is completed and reviewed the “on-the-range” interactive rider education will begin. 

These lessons include pre-ride inspection, starting and stopping, quick turns, hill riding, emergency stopping and swerving and riding over obstacles. You will also learn about protective gear, Idaho’s laws, rules and regulations, Idaho’s Off-Highway Vehicle clubs, rules of the road, places to ride and environmental concerns. Bring your friends and family, and meet new friends to ride with.  

Who should attend?
Everyone! The course is a great way to get kids off to a safe start and refresh skills that may have been forgotten or were never taught. A parent must be present for riders under 16. IDPR Responsible Riders course offers courses for ages 6 and up.
