Obtaining a Licence

Operating off-road vehicles

On a public road, trail, or any other area of use that is not covered by the Highway Safety Code, you must: 

  • hold a valid driver’s licence or probationary licence of any class, or hold a valid learner’s licence and abide by its conditions (that you be accompanied and not carry passengers)
  • be at least 16 years old
  • be at least 18 years old if the vehicle is a recreational off-road vehicle
  • be at least 18 years old if you are carrying a passenger on a quad bike that has been modified by the addition of an add-on seat

Drive safely

To safely enjoy your snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle outings, it is important to obey the law and drive responsibly.
