Since 2008, it has been law for dirt bike riders operating oﬀ their own land (or closed range course like NSORRA parks or moto tracks) to obtain a Dirt Bike Basic Safety Training course.
Why Take a Training Course?
Nova Scotia’s Dirt Bike School
NSORRA is Nova Scotia’s exclusive provider of dirt bike basic safety training.
Training required under NS OHV Act
Since 2008, the province of Nova Scotia has mandated that riders:
- acquire certified basic dirt bike safety training
- register their bikes, and
- carry a minimum of third party liability insurance.
(See the NS OHV Riders Handbook)
So what’s involved?
Dirt Bike Basic Safety Training is a one-day commitment. Our courses generally start first thing in the morning and run 5 to 6 hours. The course is a proven and progressive building of knowledge and comfortability, leading to a great foundation for trail-readiness and safe handling of your dirt bike.
How much does it cost for the day?
NSORRA’s Dirt Bike School is a fully accredited, certified and, insured program. The cost is $200 per person and includes a certified, experienced rider coach in a small class size for the best experience. Successful participants receive their Certificate of Completion as proof of NS OHV Act Basic Safety Training compliance.
Training courses will be listed on our events page. You must be a NSORRA member to take the course (http://nsorra.ca then click on Become A Member).
