C-24.2
September 1 2012
1. The application of sections 65 and 209.1 of the Highway Safety Code (chapter C-24.2) is suspended until 31 December 2011 with regard to the operation of three-wheeled motorcycles.
M.O. 2010-03, s. 1.
2. In order to operate a three-wheeled motorcycle, a person must hold a class 5 driver’s licence bearing an endorsement indicating that the Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec authorizes the licence holder to drive that type of motorcycle or the person must hold a class 6A driver’s licence, probationary licence or learner’s licence.
The requirement of an endorsement does not apply to a person during the period the person is enrolled in a driving course, approved by the Société, to operate a three-wheeled motorcycle. A class 5 driver’s licence authorizes the operation of that type of motorcycle notwithstanding the provisions of sections 28 and 28.7 to 28.10 of the Regulation respecting licences (chapter C-24.2, r. 34).
A person who contravenes the first paragraph is guilty of an offence and is liable to a fine of $300 to $360.

Where a class 5 driver’s licence authorizing the operation of a three-wheeled motorcycle was issued under Order number 2008-06 dated 11 June 2008 (G.O. 2, 2339A) and Order number 2009-13 dated 28 May 2009 (G.O. 2, 1804) and was valid on 31 October 2009, the authorization to drive a three-wheeled motorcycle is once again valid until 31 December 2011 or until the expiry date of the licence, whichever comes first.
M.O. 2010-03, s. 3.
4. In order to obtain an initial class 5 driver’s licence bearing an endorsement indicating that the Société authorizes the licence holder to operate a three-wheeled motorcycle, a person must hold a class 5 driver’s licence and must have successfully completed a driving course, approved by the Société, to operate a three-wheeled motorcycle.
The requirement of a proficiency examination set forth in sections 67 and 81 of the Highway Safety Code (chapter C-24.2) does not apply to a person seeking to obtain such a licence.
M.O. 2010-03, s. 4.
5. In order to renew or replace a class 5 driver’s licence bearing an endorsement indicating that the Société authorizes the licence holder to operate a three-wheeled vehicle, or in order to obtain a new driver’s licence of that class and bearing that endorsement, a person must hold a class 5 driver’s licence.
M.O. 2010-03, s. 5.

A class 5 driver’s licence bearing an endorsement indicating that the Société authorizes the licence holder to operate a three-wheeled motorcycle consists of 2 parts produced on 2 documents, one of which contains the information determined in section 5 of the Regulation respecting licences (chapter C-24.2, r. 34), and the other of which, in addition to the endorsement, contains the following information:
(1)  the licence holder’s file number;
(2)  the licence holder’s surname and usual given name;
(3)  the date the authorization comes into force and the date it expires;

A person who contravenes the first paragraph is liable to a fine of $30 to $60.
M.O. 2010-03, s. 8.
9. A peace officer who has reasonable grounds to believe that a person driving a three-wheeled motorcycle does not hold the licence prescribed in section 2 may, at the expense of the owner and on behalf of the Société, immediately seize the vehicle and have it impounded for 30 days.
