Minit-Tune & Brake| Tuesday, August 23, 2016

Have you moved to or within Western Canada? Don’t just focus on your personal belongings; there are steps to take for your vehicle as well. Before your vehicle can be registered in your new Province, it needs to have an Out of Province Vehicle Inspection and Certification. Whether you are headed to school in British Columbia or have moved to Alberta, you need to be aware of the vehicle safety regulations for different provinces of Canada. Ensuring your vehicle is ready for the drive there is only half the battle. You want to make sure your car, truck or van is compliant with safety rules and regulations and ready for registration.

Vehicle Inspection to Ensure Compliance

Here’s what you need to know about out-of-province vehicle inspections:

  • When you need them: If your vehicle is older than four years old, it will need to pass an inspection when making the move between Saskatchewan, Alberta and BC. These inspections are required to ensure that the safety of all vehicles in the province meet local standards, but can be a hassle for vehicle owners. Especially when they need to be completed in conjunction with managing all the details of a big cross-country move.
  • When you don’t need them: If your vehicle is new or has been inspected in the past three months, it won’t need to pass another test. That means a little planning can save you a lot of time and energy. Schedule your vehicle inspection today.
  • Where to get an inspection done: Visit one of Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centres 18 locations.
