Quad bike safety

You can't drive a quad bike on a public road or public place - including a park, beach, or footpath - unless you have a conditional registration.

Safety tips for quad bike riders

Always wear the correct safety gear – see the list of motorcycle protective clothing PDF (3.1 MB).

Undertake training or have sufficient experience before operating a quad bike.

Keep the wheels on the ground at all times.

You should have sufficient strength, weight and agility to operate safely and react quickly to changing terrain or conditions.
