Out of Province Vehicle Inspections

As of April 1, drivers moving between British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan may qualify for a vehicle inspection exemption. An out-of-province inspection may not be needed if vehicles are either less than four years old or have been inspected in the last 90 days at a government licensed inspection facility in the registered ownerís home province.

Rebuilt, right-hand drive, custom, kit cars and lifted or lowered vehicles are not exempt from an out-of-province inspection because of the varying vehicle equipment standards between the provinces.
