Michigan DNR Begins New Online ORV Safety Course

Posted: Updated:

Michigan DNR launches a new online off-road vehicle safety course Monday.

Michigan ORV operators can obtain their required Safety Training Certificate by taking a Michigan-endorsed and approved course at www.ATVcourse.com.

ORV operators who are under the age of 16 are required to have a Safety Training Certificate and under the supervision of an adult to legally operate an ORV. 

Training is not required for operators 16 years and over, but the DNR recommends all riders get the safety training.

This online course makes it easier for students who cannot attend a traditional ORV classroom course. 

The course is free to sign up and study for, and costs $29.95 upon completion.
