 CONCORD - Winter is al- most here, and free in-person snowmobile safety education classes are now being scheduled in the Granite State. To operate a snowmobile or off-highway rec- reational vehicle (OHRV) in New Hampshire, any person age 12 or older must have either a valid motor vehicle driver’s license or have successfully completed an approved OHRV/Snowmobile Safety Education class, which are taught by instructors and staff trained by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department. Those interested in attending should register soon by visiting education.html.
OHRV/Snowmobile Safety Education classes can also be conveniently taken online. With recent changes to the state laws,
all online classes will include a combination of practical OHRV and snowmobile safety and the rules that apply to all trail riders. The cost for the virtual class is $34.50. Learn more by visiting education-online.html.
“The online safety courses provide a convenient option for students to obtain their New Hampshire Rider Certificate, at their own pace, while learn- ing key safety information im- portant for riding both OHRVs and snowmobiles,” said Cap- tain Michael Eastman, OHRV/ Snowmobile Education and Law Enforcement Coordinator for the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department. “The entire course can be taken on a smartphone, tablet, or computer and offers a fun approach to learning by
using live-action video and inter- active learning modules.”
All children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a li- censed adult over the age of 18 when operating a snowmobile or OHRV, including on prop- erty belonging to their parents, grandparents, or guardians.
To register for an online safety class visit ohrv/education.html.
Many of the trained volunteer instructors who lead in-person classes are affiliated with one of the more than 100 snowmobile and 26 OHRV clubs in New Hampshire. “Joining a club is
a great way to learn about safe riding, help support local land- owners, and help maintain trails for your own and others’ enjoy- ment,” Eastman said.

In addition to safety educa- tion, NH Fish and Game Con- servation Officers will be out on the trails this winter conducting patrols to detect and apprehend impaired snowmobile operators, enforce speed limits, deter un- lawful off-trail riding, and detect machines with modified exhaust. These ongoing initiatives will help to keep the state’s snowmo- bile trails open and safe for all outdoor enthusiasts during the upcoming seasons.
