Driver Training to Continue Online Only For 2021-22 Season

Registration Available Now For Students 12 Years and Older

(Barrie, ON: September 27, 2021) – The Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) is announcing that for the 2021-22 season, its popular Driver Training Program will continue to teach young riders the skills and habits necessary to be safe and courteous snowmobile operators entirely online.

With the 4th wave of the pandemic here, Online Driver Training continues to be the safest and most accessible virtual alternative to classroom instruction, which is not being offered to protect both instructors and their students during the pandemic. To continue the program without interruption, OFSC Driver Training course registration is now available online.

Working with the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO), OFSC Driver Training has made a major contribution to snowmobile safety since 1976 by educating students age 12 and older and providing qualifying graduates with a Motorized Snow Vehicle Operator’s License from MTO.

Online Driver Training continues to be a reliable, standardized platform for teaching young riders, with more than 6300 students successfully completing online driver training last year. Parents will enjoy many convenient benefits from Online Driver Training. The course is available year-round, so as soon as a child turns 12 years old, she or he can register for and take the course at any time in the convenience of their home. Online will better accommodate today’s busy family schedules and is now offered in both English and French. Additionally, qualifying graduates can obtain their Motorized Snow Vehicle Operator’s License online.

Students must be at least 12 years of age to receive a Motorized Snow Vehicle Operator’s License. A young, licensed operator must be accompanied by a legally licensed adult, who also must drive the youth’s sled when riding on or crossing a roadway.
