Top tips for rider safety:

  • Make sure the loads carried on the racks are secure and evenly balanced and do not exceed the capacity of the ATV (check the manufacturers' recommendations).
  • Always be aware of your surroundings and keep your eyes peeled for any pedestrians, livestock, obstructions or other vehicles.
  • Inspect the ATV before use to ensure working order.
  • Avoid sudden increases in speed. This is a common cause for overturned vehicles.
  • Always wear the correct personal protective equipment such as helmets, boots, long sleeve shirt and trousers.
  • When riding across a slope, keep weight forward.
  • When going downhill, slide your weight backwards, select a low gear and use engine braking, which reduces the need to brake.
  • Walk a new route before riding through it. This will give you a better perspective of the dangers or obstacles.
  • British weather is unpredictable, so be aware of changes in ground conditions as these could affect the load you are carrying or the attachments you are pulling.
  • Always read the owner's manual.
