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.
Which Inspection do you require?
OUT OF PROVINCE SAFETY INSPECTION
Out of Province Inspection is a BC government-required test for used vehicles coming into British Columbia from another province. The process covers steering, heater controls, body integrity, engine compartment, lighting and electrical, brakes and other systems.
PRE PURCHASE INSPECTION
We can’t stress this enough. Before you make a purchase on a USED vehicle, have a pre-purchase inspection done. The cost of just one inspection could save you thousands, or just walk away from purchasing a bad vehicle.
Whether you’re in the market of buying or selling a used car. Our Pre-Purchase Vehicle Inspection offers a comprehensive mechanical and system(s) performance examination. After completion, our report will rate the vehicle through a stoplight (Red, Yellow, Green) legend which shows an overall assessment of the vehicle.
After the inspection you’ll know if there’s anything that needs to be repaired soon, or can negotiate a better deal.
The Safety Inspection covers the brakes, tires, seat belts, warning lights and other systems that are critical to your car’s safety. This inspection helps ensure that your car is road ready.
