Know Before You Go
Licence & Insurance
To snowmobile legally in Ontario, you must have a valid Driver's Licence or Snow Vehicle Operator's Permit. The OFSC is authorized as an agent to issue snow vehicle operator's licences. For more details visit the OFSC Driver Training Program. In addition, for your own machine, you’ll need proof of snowmobile ownership, registration and insurance.
Types of Snowmobile Permits
Comfort and Safety
Wear reflective, layered clothing, a helmet and face shield, waterproof, insulated boots and leather snowmobile mitts. Consider a buoyant snowmobile suit and carry extra socks, boot liners and mitts for layering. Never drink and ride, operating your sled under the influence of alcohol is punishable under the Criminal Code of Canada.
