Off road vehicle nuisance and anti-social behaviour.

Riding any motorbike, quad bike or mini-moto off-road on public land, parks, pavements, waste ground or footpath in St.Helens is illegal - and will not be tolerated.

Riders run the risk of their machines being confiscated and crushed if they are caught. There is also a risk of life changing injuries or worse from crashes or falls linked to the anti-social use of the vehicles.

There is nowhere in Merseyside where off-road vehicles can be legally ridden, without the permission of a private land owner.

Staying Safe
If you do have an off-road vehicle always:

  • Protect yourself from accidents and injury by wearing full protective clothing at all times and a helmet that fits correctly and is securely fastened.
  • Transport your off-road bike to a legitimate riding area in a van or trailer.
  • Ride in an area where off road vehicles can be lawfully ridden, such as on private land with the permission of the landowner or at an organised, supervised off road centre.
    Look into organised motorbike groups in your local area.
  • Contact the Auto-cycle Union (the governing body for the sport), for a full list of venues and events near to you:
