Youth Tractor & Machinery Safety Course

The Tractor and Machinery Safety course certifies youth under 16 to operate tractors on public roads or work near dangerous equipment on farms. This certification allows 12 and 13 year olds to drive equipment on public roads for their parents’ farm, while 14 and 15 year-olds are certified to work for extended family and non-family members. Certification is obtained by successfully completing the Tractor and Farm Machinery Safety Training Course including a written and tractor driving exam. The class is 24 hours long, running 6 hours per day for four consecutive weekdays.

YOUTH MUST BE AT LEAST 12-YEARS OLD BY THE BEGINNING OF THE COURSE TO ENROLL
