Laws and Regulations
Effective immediately, all snowmobile operators who were born on or after January 1st, 1989 are now required to complete a snowmobile safety course before operating a snowmobile on public land.
A snowmobile operator with a class 7 licence (learner's permit) must now be supervised or accompanied by a qualified driver when operating on the travelled portion of a public road. This is in addition to the provision that requires them to take a safety course.
You must be at least 12 years of age to enroll in the online safety course.
When an individual without a driver's licence turns 16 years of age, they are no longer required to be supervised when operating a snowmobile on public land, provided that they have complete a safety course.
