In order for a youth to successfully complete the program and receive the Wisconsin Safe Operation of Tractor and Machinery Certificate of Training he or she must:
- attend 24-hours of instructional training;
- pass a written exam with a score of 70% or greater; and
- pass a driving exam, which demonstrates tractor driving ability in a 2-wheel course with a trailed implement.
It is up to the discretion of the certifying authority and the instructors to determine their program policy on making up missed instructional hours. However, no more than 8 instructional hours can be completed through make-up activities.
