RIDE WITHOUT A MOTORCYCLE LICENSE IN QUEBEC

Quebec car drivers can now ride the Can-Am® roadster following a short seven-hour riding course.

NEW REQUIREMENTS TO OPERATE THE CAN-AM ROADSTER

 

As of April 1, 2010
To operate a Can-Am roadster in Quebec, you must:

  • hold a valid Class 5 driver’s license (passenger vehicle) and successfully complete the Road Safety Education Program – Operating a Three-Wheeled Motorcycle driving course.
    or
  • hold a valid Class 6A driver’s license or probationary license (all types of motorcycles);
    or
  • hold a valid Class 6A learner’s license (all types of motorcycle) and operate your vehicle in the presence of an accompanying driver.

Holders of a Class 5 learner’s license and probationary license cannot operate a three-wheeled motorcycle.

For more information, visit the SAAQ site:

THE ROAD SAFETY EDUCATION PROGRAM

This course is offered at motorcycle driving schools recognized by the Association québécoise du transport et des routes (AQTR)

Length of the course
The riding course lasts a minimum of 7 hours and consists of the following:

  • 3 hours of classroom instruction;
  • 2 hours of practice driving on a closed circuit track;
  • 2 hours of on-road practice.

Course objectives
The course promotes safe, cooperative and responsible driving. It prepares drivers to operate a three-wheeled motorcycle and educates them about the related risks that are inherent to a motorcycle operator, the motorcycle and the environment.

Although all motorcycle driving schools are authorized to give the three-wheeled motorcycle driving course, they have the choice of whether or not to offer it. Here is a list of participating accredited schools:

AUTHORIZATION TO DRIVE

Once you have passed the course, you are required to mail a copy of the attestation issued by the driving school, and your file number to:

Service aux particuliers
Société de l'assurance automobile du Québec
333, boulevard Jean-Lesage, N-3-14
Québec (Québec) G1K 8J6

The SAAQ will then mail you an authorization to operate a three-wheeled motorcycle.

Be sure to keep this authorization with your Class 5 driver’s license. The authorization is valid for the period indicated. However, if your driver’s license expires during the summer or fall, you must renew the authorization at the same time as your driver’s licence to maintain your right to operate this type of vehicle.
