SNHSS Safety Class

OHRV Safety Education Class - Saturday December 16th 8:30am-4:00pm

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department strongly recommends that all riders participate in a Safety Education Class. State law requires that all operators 12 years of age and over must possess either a valid Motor Vehicle Driver’s License or must have successfully completed an approved OHRV or Snowmobile Safety Education Class when operating off their own property. Off-Highway Recreational Vehicle (OHRV) Safety Education Courses for snowmobiles, All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) and trail bikes are taught by Fish and Game-certified volunteer instructors. The safety course certifies children 12 years of age and older. There is no charge to take the course, and a parent or parents are required to stay during class time. Lunch will be provided by the club!
