About this course

Check the quad bike. Is it safe? Do you know what to look for? Then ride the quad bike. Do you know its limitations? What you can and can’t do on it? And when you get back safely, do you have a procedure for shutting it down and making sure it’s ready to go next time you need it?

Tocal's one day course will teach even the most experienced rider how to operate them safely.

The course aims to develop knowledge and skills in:
  • safely and effectively operating quad bikes
  • undertaking pre-start checks and shut-down procedures
  • carrying out routine checks and maintenance.
