Youth Snowmobile Safety Training

The Faribo Sno-Go Club, in conjunction with the Minnesota DNR is once again hosting a Youth Snowmobile Safety Training Course.  Anyone born after December 31, 1976 needs to obtain snowmobile safety certification to lawfully operate a snowmobile in MN.  Students need to be age 12-15 by March 1st, 2023.  The course requires successful completion of the online course work prior to the mandatory Field Day session.  The online coursework can be found at or via the MnDNR website under snowmobile safety training tab.  There is a fee for the online portion.


The students MUST complete the online course work and print the Certificate of Completion.  The Certificate of Completion MUST be brought to the Field Day session.  Students will not be allowed to take the Field Day portion of the course without it.  NO exceptions.


The Field Day will be Saturday morning, December 16th.  The first session will begin at 9am.  If the first session fills, we will open a second session.  As the students arrive they will check-in with their Certificate of completion and have a brief classroom session.  A short 15 question quiz will be given to highlight different areas of the online coursework.  After that they will move onto an overview of the snowmobile controls and complete a pre-trip safety inspection of a snowmobile.  From there they will navigate through the driving course.  Parents should plan on the entire Field Day taking approximately 2 hours from the time their student begins.


Students need to be pre-registered for the Field Day. Registration is via our website and clicking on the Youth Snowmobile Safety Training link. Please fill out the form COMPLETELY.  We will be sending out an email to confirm your student is registered.  Our class size is limited and every student MUST be registered.  We will be sending out an email once we have determined a location for the Field Day.  Depending on snow conditions and class size, the location may not be determined until midweek December 12th-14th.  It will be in the Faribault area.  It is preferred that the students bring their own snowmobiles as they are more comfortable on them.  We will also have a snowmobile available if students need them.
