Tractor and Machinery Certification is mandated by Federal legislation for any youth 14-15 years old working on a farm not owned or operated by the youth’s parents or legal guardians and who are operating tractors over 20 PTO horsepower and/or certain farm equipment. In Wisconsin, any farm youth under the age of 16 are prohibited from operating agricultural machinery on public roads unless they have completed a Tractor & Machinery Certification Course. A law signed by the Governor in 1998 sets a lower age limit at youth 12 years of age to become certified in tractor and machinery operation. This course is offered virtually and students are required to attend each session day. In-person driving tests will be will scheduled separately. Passing both a written exam and a driving exam are requirements for successful course completion and certification.
Note: A parent or guardian must accompany his/her child to the first 30 minutes of the first session via Zoom. A short presentation on parent responsibility will be conducted at that time.
