Hands-on Training

In order to obtain your New York State Snowmobile Safety Certificate, you must attend an in-person classroom course. However, before attending the classroom Snowmobile Safety Course, study using this free online course. There is no requirement to take a hands-on Snowmobile Safety training course in New York State.

However, Fresh Air Educators and the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation strongly recommend that all snowmobile operators (especially new and young riders) take a hands-on snowmobile safety course, where you can practice snowmobile skills and riding techniques under the supervision of a live instructor.
