    ORVA Helmet Requirements

    The Highway Traffic Act, the Off-Road Vehicles Act and the Motorized Snow Vehicles Act all have sections that call out a requirement for a helmet.

    I've found the helmet requirements for the HTA and MSVA (Regulation 610 and 804 respectively), but can't find the listings for the ORVA. Can you provide more information on what "complies with the regulations"?

    Sure, no problem!

    It's Regulation 863 pursuant to the Off Road Vehicles Act, and here is how the section reads:

    11. The requirements for a helmet for the purpose of section 19 of the Off-Road Vehicles Act are those set out for motorcycles in Regulation 610 of the Revised Regulations of Ontario, 1990 made under the Highway Traffic Act. O. Reg. 317/03, s. 3.

    Here is a link to the Regulation:

    Hope this helps!

    Re: ORVA Helmet Requirements

    Only if it's registered as an off road vehicle!
