The snowmobile education course is designed to teach students the principles of safe snowmobiling and how snowmobiling affects other people and the environment.
The following age restrictions apply to persons operating a snowmobile on public land, public ice, designated riding trails or designated riding areas in Iowa:
The focus of the DNR Snowmobile Education Program is to provide an education course that reduces the rate of accidents, injuries, property damage, and fatalities, while at the same time promoting the development of environmental stewards by educating our students about environmental concerns, energy conservation and proper maintenance of snowmobiles, and promoting the practice of only riding in legal areas and with landowner permission.
Students can attend an instructor-led class or take a
certification course online. Students must complete a written exam with a
minimum score of 80% to receive an education certificate. Cost of the
instructor-led course is $10 payable at the time of class. The cost of the
online course includes the $5 certification fee.
