OFA provides comments to the Ministry of Transportation regarding a redefinition proposal for power assisted bicycles (E-bikes). OFA recommends the definition for all E-bike types include requirements for license, registration and insurance. To ensure clarity and awareness of enforcement, OFA recommends E-bike regulations, requirements and exemptions be applied as consistently as possible to the existing types of off-road vehicles that have on-road allowances. All operators in control of E-bikes using the roadway, should be required to have at minimum a G2 or M2 driver’s license. OFA recommends the minimum age of the operator align with Ministry of Transportation driver’s license requirements for all E-bike classes.
