Vehicle Inspection

Why would You need a Vehicle Auto Inspection?

You need an Out of Province Inspection, AMVIC Inspection, or Safety Inspection and you want to know why. We all want safer roads. Ensuring that our vehicles meet safety standards can reduce injuries and death caused by accidents.  Inspections are usually required due to the age of your vehicle, if your vehicle has been involved in a collision, or if it was not always registered in Alberta.** If you are buying a used vehicle, it is a good idea to get a Pre-Purchase Inspection done to ensure that the car is in working order and will not require much maintenance right away. Inspections can save you a lot of money and can even save your life.

OUT OF PROVINCE INSPECTIONS:

As required by the Alberta Government, any vehicle that has been previously registered in another province must be inspected by certified professionals and pass an Out of Province (OOP) Auto Inspection prior to being registered and licensed in Alberta.

The mechanical portion of the Out of Province Vehicle Inspection involves virtually all vehicle components including the fuel and exhaust systems, electrical systems, engine controls, powertrain, driveline, steering, suspensionbraking systems, lights, tires, glass, wipers and defrosters.

** BEFORE your auto inspection, you will need to attain a Request for Inspection form which is available at any Alberta motor vehicle registry.

PRE-PURCHASE INSPECTIONS:

It is always wise to have a used vehicle inspected prior to purchase. Knowing the true condition of the vehicle can help you to make an informed decision when deciding whether or not to make the purchase. A pre-purchase inspection will let you know what the vehicle’s current state is and what possible repairs it may need in the near future.
