ATV Safety Training

Several deputies in the Sheriff's Office are trained and certified by the Minnesota DNR as ATV Safety Instructors.  Typically, each year, at least one ATV safety class is presented, where youth can earn their state ATV safety certificate.  The Sheriff's Office teaches the classes in cooperation with the DNR and uses the DNR's curriculum.  We offer a "blended" learning experience, where the students first complete a portion of the class available in an online setting.

Following completion of the online portion of the class, the students are taught by deputies in a classroom setting and then move outside for the practical portion of the class, where each student demonstrates their riding proficiency on their ATVs.

Youth ATV

Students wishing to take a course through the Sheriff's Office must:

1. Be at least 11 years old at the time of the class.
2. Have successfully completed the online portion of the class and print their certificate.
3. Be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
4. Have their own ATV and safety gear for the practical portion of the class.

The on-line portion of the class can be found at:

When classes are scheduled, press and social media announcements are made by the Sheriff's Office.  To receive these and other announcements, follow us on Facebook at:
