CD Based Youth Snowmobile Safety Classes

General Information

The CD Based youth snowmobile safety training class is an introductory class designed primarily for the snowmobile rider with little or no experience in snowmobile operation.

Students obtain and study the safety information on the interactive CD at their own pace in the comfort of their own home under the guidance of a parent or guardian.  Depending on the youth’s age and experience, the CD should take approximately 2-4 hours to complete.

Once they complete the CD, students print out a ‘voucher of completion’ and look on the DNR website to find and register for a one day Snowmobile Safety CD class in their area.  The one day class includes classroom review of priority safety information and a performance driving course.  A fee of up to $5.00 may be collected by the instructor for any fees they incur to conduct the class. Each student will also pay an on-line DNR fee of $5.00 upon completion of the course.

Please Note: You will not be allowed to participate in the classroom review/performance test unless you have first completed the Youth Snowmobile Safety CD.
