BCSO trains new OHV enthusiasts

The Boundary County Sheriff’s Office put on another off-highway vehicle training class for youth last Friday. The course, instructed by Undersheriff Rich Stephens, Deputy David Wion and Sheriff David Kramer, taught the participants safety and riding skills for motorbikes, allowing the students to receive an Idaho Parks and Recreation permit to ride on Forest Service roads prior to being able to get a drivers license.

This course is required for anyone without a driver’s license to be able to ride their off-highway vehicles (motorbikes, ATVs or side by sides) on Forest Service roads or trails.

Many of the students are part of a 4-H motorcycle group, who will continue to build their skills throughout the year.

The Sheriff’s Office enjoys providing this training for the younger riders to help get them started off on their riding adventures!
