Sheriff's office to hold snowmobile safety course

The McHenry County Sheriff's Office will be hosting the IDNR Snowmobile Safety Certification Course from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 23 at the McHenry County Government Center.

The course is open to anyone 12 or older and for those who don't have a valid driver's license. Those who do not have a valid driver's license need to have this certificate to legally operate a snowmobile in the State of Illinois. Those who possess a valid driver's license may also attend to expand their knowledge of snowmobile safety. 

The IDNR Snowmobile Safety Certification Courses cover maintenance and repair of snowmobiles, proper and safe operation, the history of snowmobiling, first aid, protection of the environment, and the state laws. Persons completing the minimum eight hours of instruction and successfully completing the final examination will receive a State of Illinois Certificate of Competency and a graduate patch. 

Interested participants can pre-register with Cathy Hardt at 815-334-4739 or cdhardt@co.mchenry.il.us . Class size is limited to 30 students and pre-registration is required.
