Snowmobile Safety Courses Now Online

All Wisconsin residents born after 1985 are required to take a snowmobile safety course before operating a snowmobile on land not owned by the operator. The Department of Natural Resources sponsors safety classes throughout the state and now also provides safety training via an online class for interested operators ages 16 and over. The goals of the snowmobile safety course are: to reduce the potential for snowmobile accidents, injuries and fatalities; to reduce the potential for conflict between snowmobilers, landowners, and other resource users; and to promote safe, responsible, and ethical use of the environment and our resources.
