What is the Out of Province Inspection Program?

The out of province inspection program was created to keep unsafe or derelict vehicle off of Alberta roads to ensure the safety of Albertans and their families.

How do I know if I will require an out of province Inspection?

Any vehicle whether it is brand new or very old, will require an out of province inspection if it was registered in another province or comes from out of country. Also home built vehicles that have never been registered will require an inspection.

What if I brought my vehicle up from the USA?

Vehicle that come from another country will require an out of country inspection before it gets and out of province inspection. Canyon Meadows Auto Service staff is here to guide you through this simple process.

What does the inspection involve?

The inspection takes 2-3 hours plus the time for the associated paperwork. It is a comprehensive mechanical and electrical fitness inspection. We inspect fuel and exhaust systems, all electrical, braking, powertrain, driveline, steering, suspension, systems, wiring and lights, tires, glass, wipers and defrosters. The frame and body are inspected for evidence of poorly repaired collision damage. The standards to pass the inspection are set out by the Government of Alberta and Canyon Meadows Auto Service expert technicians follow the government requirements exactly as they are laid out.

What happens if my vehicle does not pass the inspection?

Most of the time it is just minor repairs that are required like lights being out and what not that can be fixed the same day. Failures are documented and a passing certificate will be issued immediately after the inspection is considered to be a pass. Depending on the extent of what is required, the customer has 10 days to have the re inspection completed or a new request form will be required from the registration office.
