Tractor Safety

Youth Tractor & Machinery Safety Course

The Tractor and Machinery Safety course certifies youth under 16 to operate tractors on public roads or work near dangerous equipment on farms. This certification allows 12 and 13 year olds to drive equipment on public roads for their parents’ farm, while 14 and 15 year olds are certified to work for extended family and non-family members. Certification is obtained by successfully completing the Tractor and Farm Machinery Safety Training Course including a written and tractor driving exam.

Dane County and Rock County staff teach one tractor safety class and alternate the host county from year to year.  For 2018, the class will be held in Rock County in Janesville at the Rock County Fairgrounds.  The class will be held the week of June 18th.  More details and registration information will be posted by the end of April.  Due to space limitations, we will be accepting Dane and Rock County children before accepting children that reside in other counties.
