Why Ready to RideON?

The Ontario Federation of All Terrain Vehicle Clubs (OFATV) launched the Ready to RideON program to address the gap in ATV education for youth in Ontario. With tens of thousands of young ATV riders and limited opportunities to learn proper riding techniques, this course fills a critical need.

In an effort to reduce injuries and fatalities amongst young ATV riders, a group of industry players joined forces to launch online rider safety training for youth today.

In 2018, SickKids reported 181 cases of serious and/or fatal ATV-related injuries, with children aged 10 to 14 accounting for nearly half (45.3%) of these cases.

SickKids also found that provinces with legislated safety training for youth have lower rates of ATV injuries and fatalities, highlighting the importance of programs like Ready to RideON.
Between 2016 and 2022, Ontario Provincial Police reported 151 deaths and over 1,500 injuries from ATV or Side-by-Side accidents, with loss of control being the leading cause.

“ATV riding is not just a fun activity for young riders who get a taste of independence and freedom on the trails, but it’s a necessity for some youth who rely on the machines for farm work or transportation, particularly in rural areas. We know that helping these young riders build confidence and skills is key to mitigating accidents across the province. As a group of industry leaders, we felt compelled to build programming that would do just that.”
