Safe Riders! Love this Planet(tm)Snowmobile Safety Class Schedule

A snowmobile safety class is required for all Illinois children from the ages of 12 to 16 years,
as well as
for adults that do not posses a valid Illinois drivers license.

 The Illinois Snowmobile Education Course consists of a minimum eight hours of instruction. These courses cover the basics in maintenance and repair of snowmobiles, proper and safe operation, the history of snowmobiling, first aid, protection of the environment, and the state laws. As in other courses various visual aids are provided to enhance the quality of instructions.

(Children 10-11 are welcome to attend, however they will not receive their safety certificate until their 12th birthday.) Youngsters are also required to have a safety certificate in all surrounding snow states. Surrounding states do accept an Illinois safety certificate as proof of proper training.
