1. This Act applies to the following off-highway vehicles:
(1) a snowmobile whose net mass does not exceed 450 kilograms and whose width does not exceed 1.28 metres, equipment included;
(2) a motorized all-terrain vehicle equipped with handlebars and at least two wheels, that is designed to be straddled and whose net mass does not exceed 600 kilograms;
(3) such other motorized vehicles designed to travel off a public highway as are determined by regulation.
This Act does not apply, however, to vehicles authorized pursuant to the Highway Safety Code (chapter C-24.2) to travel on public highways.
On competition circuits laid out and used for the competition of motor vehicles subject to the Act respecting safety in sports (chapter S-3.1), only the requirement for the operator to be at least 14 years of age applies. However, a person under 14 years of age may operate an off-highway vehicle in a competition held in compliance with the standards prescribed in a regulation made or approved by the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Greater Montréal under that Act.
