A Department of Natural Resources certified ATV training course will be offered in Two Harbors. The class is required by Minnesota law for youth who plan to operate an ATV in the state. Participants must be 11-years old or older and have parental permission to attend.
To earn certification, participants will be expected to complete the ATV safety training course CD and print a copy of the program’s certificate of completion. The certificate must be signed by the parent or guardian on the day of the training and a birth certificate must be presented for age verification purposes. The ATV CD-Rom is available, free of charge, at the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, 613 Third Avenue, Two Harbors.
Participants must also attend a field operating class, which will be outdoors. They are encouraged to dress for the weather and bring a helmet if one is available. ATVs for the riding portion of the class will be provided by Sonju Polaris and there will also be a written test.
Registration for the class is also at the Lake County Sheriff’s Office. Upon completion of the course students must pay a $10 online fee to the DNR.
