Town of Lakewood:  The Hidden Bear Trail ATV Club and the Red Arrow Snowmobile-ATV Club are sponsoring a Wisconsin DNR Certified ATV Safety Course.  The course will be held at the Town of Lakewood Community Center,  North Rd. and Highway F (just east of highway 32).   The one (1) day class will meet on Saturday, April 23, 2022 from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm.   Student Handbooks will be mailed out 2 weeks prior to the class.  Registration will close by Thursday, April 7, 2022.  This will allow sufficient time to mail out the Student Handbooks.

This is a one (1) day class, so students are expected to read the Student Handbook and complete the Chapter Review questions in advance of the actual class.  This format was used at a class last year, and works exceptionally well as the students come prepared.

Anyone is welcome to attend the course with a recommended minimum age of 11-1/2.  Anyone born after January 1, 1988 and at least 12 years old must have ATV certification to operate on public areas.  These students who have not reached the age of 12 may not use the certificate to operate alone until they turn at least 12 years of age.  Parents and adults are encouraged to enroll and participate.  Fees for the course are $10.00 per student.  The fee is waived if you, your parents, or your grandparents are members of either Hidden Bear Trail or Red Arrow clubs.

Students successfully completing the course will receive ATV safety graduate certificates.  This is classroom only, there is no actual ATV operation.

Students must register online and also obtain a DNR customer number at gowild.wi.gov or a customer number can also be obtained at DNR service outlets or by calling 888-936-7463.

Class size will be limited to 30 participants.  It is recommended  to register well in advance of the April 6, 2022 deadline as these classes are normally full.  Students with special needs will need to contact the instructor at least two weeks to request special accommodations. For information, please contact Brian Fitzpatrick at fitzpatrick953@gmail.com (preferred) or call 715 340-6262 (cell).
