Quad bike incidents are the leading cause of fatalities and serious injuries on Australian farms, with less than six per cent of quad bike operators formally trained in their use.*

Before you or your workers use a quad bike make sure you know how to do so safely.

Even for experienced users, quad bike training helps to refresh their understanding of, and skills in managing the risks associated with quad bikes. This hands-on training will help keep you and your workers safe.

Ask your dealer when purchasing a new or used vehicle about accredited training opportunities in your area.
