• A snowmobile may be operated in terrain by a person who is at least 15 years of age. In addition to meeting this age requirement, driving a snowmobile on a snowmobile route or across roads requires a T-class driver's licence. 
  • Driving in terrain outside of snowmobile tracks and routes requires separate permission from the landowner. Metsähallitus issues these permits for the lands it controls. 
  • Drunk-driving regulations also apply to snowmobile drivers. 
  • A snowmobile cannot be driven on roads except for the purpose of crossing a road or a bridge. 
  • Always drive with your headlights on. The use of headlights is mandatory on snowmobile routes. 
  • The highest speed limit for snowmobiles in terrain and on routes is 60 km/h. On ice-covered water areas the speed limit is 80 km/h. If the snowmobile is connected to a sled with passengers on-board, the speed limit is 40 km/h. 
  • The use of a crash helmet to protect against noise and injury is mandatory. 
  • The traffic on snowmobile routes is subject to the stipulations of the Road Traffic Act. The traffic on the routes is right-sided. 
  • Snowmobile drivers respect nature. Do not be wasteful, leave rubbish behind or make unnecessary noise, and always be mindful of others moving in the nature around you.
