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.
Typically, Dane and Rock County staff teach one tractor safety class and alternate the host county from year to year. However due to staffing issues, tractor safety will be held in Rock County again in 2019.
YOUTH MUST BE AT LEAST 12-YEARS OLD BY THE BEGINNING OF THE COURSE TO ENROLL
The class will run from June 17- 19 from 8 am – 2 pm and the tests (driving and written) will be given on June 20 from 8 am-12 pm.
A parent or guardian is required to attend the start of the class with their child on June 17th from 8-9 am. Parents will not need to be present for the remainder of the course.
