Do you need a government Inspection?

Most used vehicles (other than trailers or motorcycles) being registered in B.C. for the first time or returning to B.C. after being registered outside the province must pass a mechanical safety inspection at a designated B.C. inspection facility before they can be registered, licensed and insured.

Rebuilt, altered or constructed vehicles (including kit vehicles) require a structural inspection along with the mechanical safety inspection.

An inspection may also be required when you are stopped by the police and given a ticket called "A Notice In Order". All taxi's, couriers and buses are required to have one done on a regular basis.

When your vehicle is inspected there is a list of items that are to be checked. If you fail any of these items, repairs have to be done. Some failures may require the vehicle to be taken "Out of Service" (off the road) until repairs are completed. Only a licensed inspection facility and inspector can do these inspections.
