Quad Bike Courses

Lantra-Awards Quad Bike Training Courses

Our quad bike training courses in Devon and across the South West are designed for professional Sit-Astride ATV operators and provide clients with full reporting, including the Lantra-Awards Quad Bike Certificate.

We can either visit your operators in the workplace, using the machines they will be working with, ensuring their familiarisation with their quad bikes, or train them at our Lantra-Awards approved venue.

Training ratio's depend on operator experience. We can ensure that the training has a minimal impact on your timescales. Designed to assist your PUWER compliance, this course covers all the elements recommended by the HSE (see the HSE Agricultural Information Sheet for ATVs – AIS33) and is recognised by government, industry, military and most major landowners.

Costs will vary for a day of training, depending on venue, travel and machine requirements, with certificate costs of £35/candidate.
