18. The driver’s licence required under the first paragraph of section 16 means, unless a government regulation provides otherwise, any licence that authorizes the holder to operate a road vehicle issued under the Highway Safety Code (chapter C-24.2) or a licence or authorization issued outside of Québec and accepted or recognized as being equivalent under sections 85 and following of that Code.
For the purposes of the first paragraph of section 16, a licence that is not suspended by reason of an Act, a judgment, a court order or a decision made under this Act or the Highway Safety Code is recognized as valid.
A licence that is subject to a condition or a restriction considered incompatible with the operation of an off-highway vehicle or a maintenance vehicle in accordance with the provisions prescribed by regulation of the Minister does not meet the licence requirement for the operation of such a vehicle.
