Snowmobile Safety Education Course Offered January 18


Completing eight hours of instruction and passing the written exam at the end of the class allows youth ages 12 and over to earn a state of Illinois Certificate of Competency so they can operate a snowmobile on their own. Minimum age for the safety course is 11; 12 for certification. To reserve a spot in this free course, call 847-968-3404, weekdays, 6:30 am–3 pm.

In addition to teaching basic safety principles, the course led by Forest Preserve Ranger Police, is designed to instill the proper attitude of respect for others and the environment. Development of this respect along with use of proper safety procedures are essential if snowmobiling is to continue being enjoyed as a recreational activity.
