Users must attend an introductory class through which they learn the controls of the scooter, dashboard and scooter dynamics. Through this course they are introduced to basic skills such as balance and braking and more advanced riding techniques such as lane positioning and collision avoidance. After the class the users go for a small test drive under the supervision of an instructor. More safety precautions are available in this rider manual.
