Off Road Vehicles
Under the Control of Vehicles (Off Road Areas) Act 1978 it is an offence to drive or ride an off-road vehicle, unless it is used on private land with the owner’s consent or in a designated off-road area.
Off-road vehicles generate noise and environmental complaints and are required to be registered unless used exclusively on private land. Off-road vehicle use is not permitted on other lands within the City of Armadale.
What is an off-road vehicle
An off-road vehicle is any vehicle that is not road registered and cannot be registered in accordance with the Road Traffic Act 1974.
Road registered vehicles do not require separate off-road vehicle registration.
