Snowmobile Safety Classes
Classes hosted and staffed by Waukesha County Snowmobile Association member clubs
Do you know if you were born after January 1, 1985 and are at least 12 years old, you are required to have a snowmobile safety certificate in order to operate a snowmobile on public trails and areas in Wisconsin.
Snowmobile safety is of the utmost concern to the Waukesha County Snowmobile Association. It is important to us to teach young riders about Wisconsin's snowmobile rules and regulations, proper etiquette and basic snowmobile maintenance and care so they become safe and responsible snowmobile operators. These classes aren't just for our youth, they are for anyone new to snowmobiling as it is required by Wisconsin State law.
Many of WCSA's member clubs provide snowmobile safety courses each year. Club members volunteer their time to conduct this service each year. They go through a regulated training regiment and need to be approved by the Wisconsin DNR before they can teach a safety class.
Later this fall we will post our complete listing of safety courses being offered in Waukesha County so please check back or visit the WDNR's Snowmobiling in Wisconsin page for more information.
