Get ready to ride this winter
Winter is on its way, and off-highway recreational vehicle (OHRV) and snowmobile education classes are underway across the Granite State. To operate a snowmobile or OHRV in New Hampshire, anyone age 12 or older must have a valid driver’s license or have successfully completed an approved OHRV/Snowmobile Safety Education class taught by volunteer instructors and staff trained by the state’s Fish and Game Department.
With recent changes to state laws, all classes will be a combination course teaching OHRV and snowmobile safety and the rules that apply to trail riders. Additionally, all children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a licensed adult when operating a snowmobile or OHRV, unless they are on property belonging to their parents, grandparents, or guardians.
Classes are free and completed in a single day. For the schedule, go to www.wildnh.com. New classes are added as they become available.
