Our vehicle inspections guide outlines what vehicles require this inspection.
Before any repairs are started on your vehicle do the following:
- Contact a certified vehicle inspection station that specializes in body and frame repair to schedule the inspection.
- Take colour photographs of the rear, front and each side of the vehicle.
- Take your vehicle to the vehicle inspection station of your choice.
- Complete an Application to Obtain Certification of a Rebuilt Vehicle form. Application forms are available at:
- Complete a Rebuilt Vehicle Work Plan and have it approved by the vehicle inspection station.
- Take your vehicle to the inspection station at the stages of repair required by that station.
- Take your vehicle to the inspection station for final inspection. When your vehicle passes you'll get a validated Body Integrity Inspection Certificate.
Note: The repairs and body integrity inspection must be completed within 120 days of the initial inspection completed by the inspection facility.
Cost of inspection
Inspection stations are permitted to charge their hourly shop rate multiplied by the actual time it took the inspection technician and personnel to perform the inspection on the vehicle.
It doesn't take an equal amount of time to inspect each total loss vehicle. Factors that may affect the cost of the inspection include:
- extent of damage
- type of vehicle
- condition of the vehicle
- form completion
- amount of time it takes to ensure all repairs have been made properly and in accordance with industry standards
After your vehicle passes the body integrity inspection, it will also require a mechanical safety inspection before it can be registered.
