1 A parent or legal guardian provides consent in writing.

2 He/she uses an ATV that is rated at less than 70cc during the course.

3 The class size is limited to a maximum of four participants (not including attending adults) and the class does not contain a participant who is 12 years of age or older.

4 A parent, guardian or other responsible adult (one for each participant) is in attendance while the course is being conducted.


Youths Between 12 and 15 Years of Age
