RCMP want snowmobilers to pick up their road permits once they insure their snowmobiles.
The permits are free and only require owners to bring a copy of their insurance to the RCMP detachment to be issued a permit. The permit then allows them to drive on roadways, except the main roads such as Stuart Drive, Stones Bay Road and Sowchea Road, which must only be crossed at right angles. Snowmobile drivers must still wear a helmet, obey the rules of the road, and have a valid driver’s licence.
Snowmobiles are also not allowed to drive on the roads at night.
