Explorers ATV Club
The Explorers ATV Club was formed in 2006 by a group of like minded ATV enthusiasts. As a group we were able to form and become a member club of the Quad Riders Association of B.C.—ATVBC—and thus were able to take advantage of the programs ATVBC has to offer.
Quad riding is a fun sport and lets the rider access areas that larger vehicles cannot get to but the sport does have its challenges and one of the most important is safety.
As of November 17, 2014, snowmobile registration requirements will be replaced by provisions for the registration of all off-road vehicles (ORV's). A new off-road vehicle number plate will be
available for display on ORVs while operating on Crown land or for incidental highway use and operations.
Sections of the new Off-Road Vehicle Act (ORV Act) related to registration are being implemented to replace longstanding Motor Vehicle (All Terrain) Act (MVATA) snowmobile provisions. This will
allow registration of a broader range of ORVs, including snowmobiles, snow vehicles, all-terrain vehicles (ATV's or quads), golf carts, utility vehicles/side-by-sides (Gators, Argos, Rhinos, etc.)
and motorcycles (dirt bikes).
This means that from November 17, 2014 onwards, any type of ORV may be registered – not just snowmobiles. The registration and associated off-road vehicle number plate (ORV plate)
currently are voluntary for Crown land operations, which includes travel on Forest Service Roads.
On a Forest Service Road, a minimum of $200,000 third party liability insurance and appropriate class of driver’s license continues to be required.
ATVBC has negotiated an insurance package through Oasis Insurance that offers liability and all perils policies for members of clubs at substantial savings as well as providing Event, Directors and Officers policies that ATVBC cover for all member clubs.
We support the principles of a sustainable environment and will not consciously carry out or support any activities that will lead to a detrimental effect on the diverse ecosystems of our province. ATV’s allow access to areas that are visually stunning but can be environmentally sensitive so we vigorously promote the policy of "Tread Lightly" . This means stay on the established trails and help the environment by picking up any garbage you may find along the way.
