Is the Snowmobile Card the same as the Snowmobile License?
The Snowmobile Safety Education Certificate is proof that you have successfully completed all of the components of an approved Snowmobile safety course and allows you to go snowmobiling. Because the Snowmobile education card or certificate does not expire and does not need to be renewed, it is not called the Utah Snowmobile License.
Why Snowmobile Safety Education Is Important
Snowmobiles have increased the popularity of outdoor winter recreation. More than three million people in the United States and Canada snowmobile each winter, enjoying more than 230,000 miles of groomed public trails.
As trails and recreation areas become more crowded, it’s especially important for people to operate these vehicles safely and responsibly.
Most states and provinces that have mandatory education requirements will accept the Snowmobile Safety Education Certificate. (This is known as “reciprocity.”) If you plan to snowmobile in another state, make sure you check that state’s reciprocity laws before doing so.
