ABATE of Indiana's Motorcycle Safety Division is proud to offer off-road rider training.
The Dirt Bike School was developed by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation and has been used to prepare peace officers and military personnel in the safe operation of off-road motorcycles for years.
Riders start with the entire time spent performing hands-on training on the motorcycles. At the end of the school, students should have an understanding of the techniques necessary to stay safe, act responsibly and have fun while riding off-road motorcycles.
Many manufacturers offer incentives including reimbursement for Dirt Bike School tuition.
Since children as young as six years of age can enroll, the Dirt Bike School provides an opportunity for the entire family to participate in this exciting learning experience.
Most students prefer to use their own equipment, however loan motorcycles and gear may be available.
