Two drivers sit on ATVs

ATV riding is a great outdoor activity many people participate in throughout the year. This sport can be fun and exciting but is also extremely dangerous. It's important to protect yourself while on an ATV to prevent accidents and injury.

  • Always wear protective gear. Under the Highway Traffic Act, you must wear an approved helmet
  • Carry a cellphone with you
  • Always let someone know where you're going and when you'll be back
  • Know where you can and can't ride. Police can charge riders driving on highways and rights-of-way under the Highway Traffic Act, Section IV Reg. 316/03
  • Ensure your ATV has a valid permit and is properly licensed and insured
  • Children under 12 are not permitted to drive an ATV except on land occupied by the vehicle's owner
