ROV Training (Recreational Off-Highway Vehicles)

Event Details

ROV Basic DriverCourse

Recreational Off-Highway Vehicles sometimes referred to as side-by-sides, UTVs, or ROVs, handle differently than other vehicles, such as ATVs, motorcycles, and cars. Learning to drive your ROV is an essential first step for you and your passengers.

The ROV Basic DriverCourse is a hands-on class for licensed drivers aged 16 and older, conducted by a certified ROV DriverCoach. Our DriverCoaches will help you develop the essential skills to operate your ROV in an off-road environment and teach you driving strategies to make safe and responsible driving decisions. The ROV Basic DriverCourse offers students approximately three hours of driving time on a closed range and post-exercise discussions to expand on the driving skills and strategies they’ve learned. At select locations, students can also experience open trial exercises to practice the skills and knowledge they have learned in a natural off-road environment.

The Closed Range Exercises include:

Understanding and identifying an ROV’s primary parts and controls

Starting and stopping smoothly

Low-speed steering

Turning and backing up

Braking, both standard, and quick stops


At the end of the course, each student will be given a copy of the Tips Guide for the ROV Driver and discuss topics such as using a spotter, driving on different terrains, and vehicle recovery methods. The Tips Guide for the ROV Driver is theirs to keep and is an excellent resource for practicing the skills they have learned throughout the DriverCourse.

Course Requirements

Before enrolling in an ROV Basic DriverCourse, please note that all students must be at least 16 years of age, hold a valid driver’s license, and have completed the ROHVA E-Course before arrival.
