Safety Education

Placeholder New Hampshire Other


Riding a snowmobile or wheeled vehicle
can be fun and exciting for the whole family.
Take a class, join a club and ride responsibly.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department strongly recommends that all riders participate in a Safety Education Class. State law requires that all operators 12 years of age and over must possess either a valid Motor Vehicle Driver’s License or must have successfully completed an approved OHRV or Snowmobile Safety Education Class when operating off their own property. Classes are free and offered throughout the state. For class schedules or more information on these requirements, contact Fish and Game at 603-271-3129 or visit

OHRV education classes are also being offered online, as well as in the classroom. Note that the online course costs $29.50 (traditional classroom courses are free). Register for online classes at

OHRV Safety Instructors: Each year, OHRV Regional Coordinators assist more than 200 volunteer OHRV safety instructors, who in turn educate some 1,200 students in snowmobile, ATV and trail bike safety. Regional OHRV Coordinators include Timothy Acerno, Karen Brousseau-Allard, Bryan Hadlock, Marie Hixson, Jayson Keane, Craig Mayo and Sue Rugg.

“We strongly recommend that all riders who purchase or rent OHRVs or snowmobiles take a safety class to help reduce the risk of personal injury and property damage,”

said Major John Wimsatt, who coordinates OHRV safety education and enforcement for the N.H. Fish and Game Department.

Safety On Ice

Though all ice is potentially dangerous, the U.S. Army Cold Regions Research & Engineering Laboratory in Hanover, N.H., offers a “rule of thumb” on ice thickness: There should be a minimum of six inches of hard ice before individual foot travel, and eight to ten inches of hard ice for snowmachine or All-Terrain Vehicle travel.

Be aware that ice can be weakened by objects frozen into it, because they hold the heat from the sun; avoid docks, large rocks and trees fallen onto the ice. Also avoid areas with springs or moving water under the ice.
