The goal of the Snowmobile Safety Course, which was developed by the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, is to develop safe attitudes in all Keystone State snowmobilers.
- Student manuals and workbooks are utilized to illustrate the sport’s basic principles and safety concepts. The course content covers winter clothing, machine safety, and snowmobile laws and regulations.
- Class participants qualify for their certificate by completing their workbooks and achieving a score of 80% or better on the final examination.
- Instructors are volunteers and there is no charge to take the course.
Pennsylvania’s Snowmobile Law requires youngsters between the ages of 10 to 15 to earn a safety certificate before they may lawfully operate a snowmobile in the State, except upon lands owned or leased by their parent or legal guardian.
