Wisconsin DNR Certified ATV Safety Course

The class fee for Hidden Bear Trail members, parents, & grandparents will be covered by the club.
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 Townsend Town Hall Municipal Building, 16564 Elm Street in Townsend.   The one (1) day class will meet on Saturday, May 11th, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.     Class size is limited, registration will close by April 26th or sooner if the class fills.

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.  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.  Adults are encouraged to register.  Parents may register or just attend with their child.   Fees for the course are $10.00 per student.  The fee is waived if the student, parents, or grandparents are members of either Hidden Bear Trail or Red Arrow clubs.

Students must register online and also obtain their own unique DNR customer number (not a parent’s number) at gowild.wi.gov.

Student Handbooks will be mailed out 2 weeks prior to the class. Students are expected to read the Handbook and complete the Chapter Review questions in advance of the actual class.  Students successfully completing the course exam will receive ATV safety graduate certificates.  This is classroom only, there is no actual ATV operation.  Additional details on the class will be provided once a student is registered.

Students with special needs will need to contact the instructor at least two weeks prior to request special accommodations. For information, please contact Larry Westphal at lw56trailz@gmail.com (preferred) or text 920-912-3689.
