CONCORD, N.H. - The Off Highway Recreational Vehicle (OHRV) and snowmobile safety course is available online on the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department's website. The course is available both on desktop and mobile devices.  

A press release the course teaches about the appropriate OHRV and snowmobile riding gear, how to ride in a variety of conditions, and loading and unloading. Learn more and take the course here.

"The New Hampshire OHRV and snowmobile course is a great way for students to become educated online, at their own pace, while learning key safety information we find important for riding both OHRV's and snowmobiles," said Captain John Wimsatt, OHRV/Snowmobile education and Law Enforcement coordinator for New Hampshire Fish and Game. "The course uses video, animations and more to teach those valuable lessons and emphasize the importance of respecting landowners and private property. Partnering with offroad-ed.com was a natural choice, and together we're putting safety-conscious riders on the trails." 

Studying is free and a safety education certificate costs a one-time fee of $29.50 after the student passes the exam.

Traditional OHRV courses are available throughout New Hampshire at no cost. A schedule of classes can be found at http://www.wildnh.com/OHRV/schedule.html.
