Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle Launched Interactive E-Course for ROV Safety

This e-course is the first formalized, Educational resource for the growing community of ROV enthusiasts.  The course reinforces driver responsibilities, identifying:

  • Key risk factors associated with ROV operation
  • Safe riding practices designed to reduce risk of injury

The best resources for learning to operate particular vehicle models

Recreational Off-highway Vehicles (ROVs) are designed to travel on four or more non-highway tires, with a steering wheel,
non-straddle seating, seat belts, occupant-protective structure, and an engine displacement up to 1,000cc. Sometimes referred
to as side-by-sides or utility terrain vehicles (UTVs), current ROV models are designed with seats for a driver and one or more
passengers and are used for a variety of outdoor recreational purposes as well as many work applications.

“ROHVA’s E-Course is an excellent resource for both new and experienced ROV drivers to learn how to safely operate their
vehicles while enjoying the freedom of adventure they provide,” said Paul Vitrano, executive vice president of the
Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle Association. “The E-Course is intended to improve awareness about ROVs and inspire a
safety-minded approach to off-highway recreation.”

The two-hour on-line safety course helps develop safe driving habits but is not a “learn to drive” course. Users can save their
progress and stop at any time to pick up later where they left off. At the end of the course users have the option to take an
ROV safety quiz to test their knowledge. To register for free, drivers can visit cbt.rohva.org.
