2013 Dane County UW-Extension Youth Tractor And Machinery Safety Course

While it is not required for youth operating farm equipment on their parents’ farm, this course is recommended for children to learn how to safely work in agriculture.

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.
