Provincial Government conceds to decals for Dirt Bikes and Sleds for November 1, 2015 ORV Registration

Hi Everybody,

So now for officially perhaps the worst-kept secret around, it is OFFICIAL that we will be using a sticker/decal system of ID'ing ORV's, and mandatory registration has been postponed until November 1st, 2015.

Sorry to have been so cagey about this, but it has been a long process, and subject to the confidentiality agreement. However, thanks to consistent pressure from motorized reps in all sectors, we are pleased to have achieved this concession.

ORV Act Implementation: Systemic deficiencies require moratorium of registration implementation

BCORMA has sent a letter to current Government Ministers and the Premier outlining why the Government implementation of the ORV Act vehicle registration needs to be put on hold.  There are serious issues in how this is being rolled out, and we now have less than two months before mandatory ORV registration in BC.

ORV Registration Errors Costing Riders Real $$$ - We Need Your Stories

BCORMA needs everyone's' reports on their attempts at registration and any information that was provided by the broker(s). Please reach out to anyone you know with a dirt bike, quad, SxS, or sled and that have attempted or been successful under the volunteer ORV registration program.

ORV Act Implementation: Current 5x8 metal plates vehicle identification is inoperable

BCORMA is advocating to BC Government that decals are the only viable solution for ORV vehicle identification under the ORV Act. Please read our position brief, and provide copies to your MLA.

It is very important that MLA and Ministers hear the perspective from the riding community. This is directly affecting us, and we are the experts because we ride and experience dirt bikes and other ORV.

Pass along to other riders, club members, and your MLA and their Assistants.

Any questions, please email peter.sprague@bcorma.ca
