​People who need a Snowmobile Safety Certificate, and people of all ages who are interested in safe snowmobiling.  A Snowmobile Safety Certificate is required for persons 12-16 years of age who wish to operate a snowmobile.

According to the DNR publication Michigan Snowmobile Safety & You:
A person, under the age of 12:
  • may not operate a snowmobile without the direct supervision of the parent or guardian except on property owned or controlled by the parent
  • may not cross a highway or street
A person who is at least 12 but less than 17 years of age:
  • may operate a snowmobile under direct supervision of a person 21 years of age or older, or have in their immediate possession a valid snowmobile safety certificate
  • may not cross a highway or street without having a valid snowmobile safety certificate in their immediate possession

The class typically runs 6-8 hours.


​There is no cost, but pre-registration is required.
