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.

What do I bring?
 You must wear the proper riding gear at all times during training. 
Bring the following:

  • Your OHV with current certificate of number
  • DOT approved helmet                                      
  • Goggles or face shield                                      
  • Over-the-ankle boots                                       
  • OHV type riding gloves

  • Long sleeve shirt or jacket

How much does it cost?
Nothing. Your OHV certificate of number sticker pays for the class.

Do I use my own OHV?
Yes. 

Can I share an  OHV?
No. The course is fast paced and requires all operators to have an ATV or UTV. 

What is the Riding Area like?
Riding areas around the state differ somewhat, but they all include necessary facilities to complete all ATV and UTV lessons. 
 
What are the benefits to completing the IDPR Responsible Riders Course?

Idaho recognizes OHV education completion certificates with State logo or State OHV Program logo on the certificate. Idaho currently does not recognize ASI or MSF certificates.
