3. I completed my CPR and First Aid training, where do I submit the certificates?
Please submit your certificates at the time of your license renewal. It is your responsibility to maintain current certifications during your licensure period, and TDLR does not require that you submit the certificates to the department before your expiration date.
4. Can I teach an ATV safety training course?
To be eligible to become an approved instructor, you must:
- successfully complete a department-approved instructor preparation course;
- enter into an instructor license agreement with a program sponsor; and
- submit an application on a form prescribed by the department.
- TDLR adopts the most current version of ASI's Instructor Preparation Course as the approved instructor preparation course for the program.
If you are approved as an instructor, you remain an instructor for the time period stated in the instructor license agreement with the program sponsor. Your instructor license may be extended or renewed as provided in the agreement.
