Anyone wanting to ride on specially designated roads must have a driver's license or a snowmobile safety certificate.
- Adults must have a motor vehicle driver's license.
- Minors must have a Snowmobile Safety Education Course certificate and be accompanied by an adult who is within eyesight.
To obtain a Snowmobile Safety Education Course certificate, you must do one of the following:
- Attend and successfully complete a Montana–approved snowmobile course. Classes are offered across Montana and are taught by volunteers. To find a class, contact your local snowmobile club or visit http://stateparks.mt.gov/recreation/snowmobileProgram.html.
- Complete the Montana online course if a classroom course is not available in your area. To take the online course go to the Montana State Parks website or call 406-444-3753 for instructions regarding the online course.
Montana State Parks will approve safety education certificates from other states on a case-by-case basis.
