Youth Snowmobile Safety Training is on Dec 7, 2019 from 8-12 at North Branch Area High School in the commons, with the driving part in the parking lot with or without snow.
Youth ages from 11-15 will be required to take an online training course at https://www.snowmobilecourse.com/usa/minnesota/
There is a fee for this course.
This online 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 online course 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 online course should take 2-4 hours. Once they complete the online course, students print out a "youth follow-up voucher" and register for a one day safety class in their area.
