BRP will refund the new driver training course fees to buyers of a new Can-Am
Spyder roadster

VALCOURT, QC, April 6 /CNW Telbec/ - BRP will refund the cost of the new driver training course for three-wheeled motorcycles, taken at a driving school recognized by the Association québécoise du transport et des routes (AQTR), up to a maximum of $250, to any buyer of a new and unused Can-Am Spyder roadster from an authorized BRP dealer. The program applies to all purchases made between April 1 and June 30, 2010.

"Potential three-wheeled vehicle drivers can now get the right training for their needs in line with the unique and exhilarating experience of the open road that the three-wheeled geometry and vehicle stability system of the Can-Am Spyder roadster offers," said Pierre Pichette, vice-president, Communications and public affairs.

BRP's decision was made following the announcement by the Société de l'assurance automobile du Québec (SAAQ) to issue a certificate allowing people to drive three-wheeled vehicles as long as they hold a Class 5 driver's licence (passenger vehicle) and have attended a seven-hour training course given by an AQTR-recognized motorcycle driving school. The Government of Québec's decision was made following a two-year pilot project covering some 300 Can-Am Spyder roadster owners during the 2008 and 2009 seasons.

"We are pleased that the SAAQ undertook this pilot project," Mr. Pichette also noted. "We hope that other provinces and states will now follow suit and, based on the work done in Québec, change their regulations in order to give more people an opportunity to discover the comfort and enjoyment of three-wheeled vehicles."
