ATV Safety Class @ New Mexico Department of Game and Fish Southeast Area Office
Oct 15 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish Off-Highway Vehicle Program presents an ATV safety class at the NM Game & Fish Southeast Area Office in Roswell, N.M. Students completing the class receive the safety permit required for off-highway vehicle operators under the age of 18 years. Students under the age of 18 will also receive a free helmet and goggles. ATVs and safety gear are available for use during the class.

Students must be at least 6 years of age. Space is limited – all students must already have or must create a free account with the Department of Game and Fish (https://onlinesales.wildlife.state.nm.us/), and register prior to the class. This ensures that each student will have an age- and size-appropriate training ATV available.
