Province Delays Mandatory ORV Registration
Prince George, B.C. – You don’t have to scramble to meet a June 1st deadline to register your offroad vehicle, the mandatory registration for ORVs has been delayed.
The new rules were to take effect June 1st, but the Province has announced an extension to November 1st.
The reason for the extension appears to be related to rules and regulations, as they have not yet been finalized.
The extra time provides additional time for off-road users to prepare for the mandatory registration, while the regulatory details are finalized on both registration and safety.
Another change will see ICBC issue a numbered sticker that will be available in the early fall for those who would prefer to have a sticker on the vehicle instead of a registration number plate. That change is a response to requests from off-road motorcycle and snowmobile users.
Whether a plate or a sticker, the cost will be the same, $48 dollars.
Those who have already taken advantage of the voluntary registration period and have a received a plate may exchange their plate for a sticker, if they want, at any ICBC broker at no additional cost for a limited time.
