Skip Barber Off Road Academy - VIRginia International Raceway

July 22nd, 2024

Providing industry-leading driver training since 1975, Skip Barber programs create a safe and secure environment to learn how to explore the outdoors. Through our partnership with Yamaha, you will be at the controls of some of the industry’s most advanced and safest vehicles, such as the Yamaha Wolverine RMAX2 1000 R-Spec and Wolverine RMAX4 1000 XT-R.

The 1-Day Off Road Academy

Students will begin their experience at the Skip Barber Off Road Academy in the classroom where our instructors will review the basic principles of off-road driving and the techniques that will be essential for a successful trip. Once out of the classroom our instructors will introduce you to our Yamaha UTVs, allowing you to become familiar with the inner workings of these state-of-the-art vehicles.

Next, it’s time to get behind the wheel for the first driving exercises and cone drills. These are designed to give you confidence at the controls and teach safe riding habits. After a break for lunch, you’ll begin obstacle clearance courses, learning to navigate rocks, trees, and other hazards.

The afternoon action continues into the forest where you’ll follow our instructors on the trails and be introduced to the basics of bridge and water crossings. Day one ends with a final burst of adrenaline with a lesson in high-speed driving.

Upon completion of day one students will qualify for Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle Association (ROHVA) safety certification.
