General Information Regarding ORV's

posted May 15, 2015, 9:43 AM by George Hohnisch   [ updated May 15, 2015, 9:43 AM ]

The following is general information regarding ORVs:

Pending regulations under the Off Road Vehicle (ORV) Act will require all ORVs in British Columbia to be registered through ICBC in order to use or operate an ORV on Crown land, including resource roads. For information about the effective date of mandatory registration and other key elements of the upcoming ORV laws in BC, please refer to the following ministry website regarding the cross-government Off Road Vehicle Management Framework or contact Vera Vukelich, Manager responsible for ORVs.

 

For information about registering an ORV in order to ride on Crown land, please refer to the ICBC website about ORV registration.  Please note that snowmobiles registered prior to November 17, 2014, will be required to re-register under the ORV Act - transitioning from a manual snowmobile registry to ICBCs database registry will ensure that officers have 24/7 access to the registration information to better identify irresponsible ORV riders and to track down stolen vehicles.

 

There are no new insurance requirements under the ORV Act.  The status quo insurance requirements on Forest Service Roads have been in place for decades and continues to apply. Under the Forest Service Road Use Regulation, a minimum of $200,000 third party liability insurance is required.

 

On public roads and highways under the Motor Vehicle Act, ICBC’s basic insurance continues to be a requirement for all motorists, including ORV riders who opt for incidental access to highways. See ICBCs Basic Insurance website for more information.
