Snow in the forecast?!?
It reminds us that Officer Paulson and Officer Vang with the Lino Lakes Public Safety Department will be conducting a DNR Youth Snowmobile Certification class. The class is being offered to youth ages 11-15 (certification becomes valid at age 12). This training class is an introductory class designed for the snowmobile rider with little or no experience in snowmobile operation.
The certification class takes place over the course of three days. The class includes two classroom sessions with a requirement to do some online training at home, and one additional day for the riding test. The first class will be held Thursday, November 16th 2017 from 6:00pm-8:00pm at the Lino Lakes Public Safety Department (640 Town Center Pkwy., Lino Lakes, MN 55014). During this class, the instructors will distribute the materials, discuss the course outline and answer related questions. Parents are encouraged to attend.
The second class will also be at the public safety department and will be on Thursday, December 7th, 2017 from 6:00pm-8:00pm. During this class, the instructors will address any questions and distribute the final written exam. This exam will need to be successfully completed before the student will be allowed to take riding test.
The riding test will be on Saturday, December 16th, 2017 from 8:00am-12:00pm. This date is tentative and location to be determined depending on snow and ice conditions.
There is a $5.00 processing fee required by the Minnesota DNR. For additional information regarding the class, or to sign-up, please contact the Lino Lakes Police Department at 651-982-2300.
