Training areas ie "the field" are not restricted areas in terms of security clearance, as they are not sensitive areas. I hesitate to comment without the full story, but being turned down because of "security reasons" sounds like someone who was lazy inventing a reason to say no.
There is however a very real issue with liability in terms of insurance for civilian plated vehicles. Here in Kingston the only time civilian pattern vehicles are allowed onto the trg area is when they are rentals driven by CF/DND/GoC pers for official business.
