In May of 2022, SGI began testing eInspections at certain SGI-certified inspection stations to try and streamline the inspection process. SGI deemed the test a success and, on July 4th, 2022, began rolling out the eInpections to all SGI-certified inspection stations across the province, aiming to be done by the end of September 2022. SGI has stated that the inspections stations will now be responsible for entering the information into the system. However, bringing the inspection form when registering a vehicle after getting it inspected would still be a good idea.

Recently SGI made additional changes to how deferred inspections work. Previously you could get a conditional registration for 28 days, two 8-day permits, and four 24-hour permits to facilitate the inspection and repairs process. Effective August 10th, 2022, you can only get the 28-day conditional registration if you meet the following requirements: The Interprovincial Records Exchange (IRE) system responds; you present a New Vehicle Information Statement (NVIS) or signed letter from the dealership; or if the vehicle was imported from outside of Canada and the necessary customs forms such as the K22 Import form are present. SGI has advised that if the conditional registration is expired and you need to get the vehicle to an inspection that a valid plate or permit is not required to pull the vehicle on a trailer or to have it towed with a tow truck.

So you are looking to make some extra money this summer by renting out your camper or RV. It seems like a good idea, but have you talked to your insurance broker about it? Personal Auto Paks DO NOT provide coverage if you are renting the vehicle out. Even if you sustain damage to the unit while it is not rented out just having it advertised as available to rent can result in a claim denial. Always ensure you talk to your insurance broker before advertising that you are renting out your camper or RV. Ensuring you are covered before a loss will save you from any potential headaches.

There has been an update on the payment options for outstanding fines to SGI. After the amount has been sent to CBV Collections, you can make full or partial payments in issuing offices across the province. If you want to set up a payment plan, you need to do so with CBV. The restrictions for not paying the total amount or having a payment plan are still in place, for example: not being able to renew plates or driver's licence. SGI has added the contact information for the collections agency to the bottom of this web page: https://www.sgi.sk.ca/payment-options

Starting May 6th, 2022, SGI will be referring outstanding fines to CBV Collection Services Ltd, who will then handle collecting the total amount owed. Before contacting CBV about the amount due, SGI will send out four letters total of three statements and one Final Notice. SGI will also explain the future consequences of not paying the amount owing. These consequences can include being blocked from renewing your driver’s license and renewing your plates until the amount owing is paid fully. Additionally, when the amount has been sent to CBV, you will be unable to set up a payment plan with SGI. Once the amount owing has been sent to CBV, SGI issuing offices can only take the full payment; Any payment arrangements would need to be set up with CBV.
