Why you need ATV insurance

In Quebec, civil liability insurance is mandatory under the Act respecting off-highway vehicles, no matter what type of ATV you have. This coverage protects you if you injure someone or damage their property in an accident.

Other legal requirements for operating an ATV include a valid driver's licence and all mandatory equipment.

FAQ

Is ATV insurance required?

Yes. By law, you need at least $1 million in civil liability insurance. Unlike for auto insurance, the SAAQ doesn't cover injuries if you have an accident with your off-road vehicle, unless an automobile is involved.

How can I save on my ATV insurance?

Here are some tips to save on your ATV insurance:

  • Compare quotes for different models when shopping for an ATV. Vehicles that are newer or have larger engines typically cost more to insure.
  • Consider skipping coverages that protect your vehicle. For example, if your quad is old and has lost much of its value, you might not need coverage that protects it against damage.
  • Insure other vehicles with us to qualify for our multi-vehicle discount.1
  • Choose a higher deductible if you're able to pay more out of pocket in the event of a claim.
How do I file a claim for my ATV?

If your ATV was involved in an accident or was otherwise damaged or stolen, our claims department is available 24/7. You can submit a claim online, in the Desjardins Insurance Home-Auto app or by phone.
