Looking to buy a motocross bike, snowmobile or an all-terrain vehicle (ATV)? Think insurance. It’s compulsory under the law! Before you sign a purchase contract, ask the right questions and check out the insurance premiums. This could influence which make or model you end up buying.
The importance of snowmobile or ATV insurance
The Société d’assurance automobile du Québec (SAAQ) does not provide any compensation for bodily injury if you have an off-road accident. Except in very specific circumstances, it’s your insurer who pays for bodily injury caused to a third party and for which you are liable.
And what if you’re injured? It’s up to you to check whether you have the appropriate coverage so that you’re well protected.
For more information, please consult the Vehicle/Off-Road Vehicles.
