Deferred Inspection Changes

September 13, 2022

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.
