A few people have asked about vehicle inspection forms to see what is needed to pass.

Here's a list kootenaycat sent me:

Here is a scan of the checklist that NSOR uses as a guildeline:

it depends on who is doing it

signing off somthing as road worthy

and being road worthy can be 2 different things

unless it screams unsafe most are very fair.....

when refering to "most" vehicals VI's are a joke! Its nothing more than a government scam! As "most" vehicals would never pass and or just let though.

now when it comes to a modified 4x4, your surely gonna take it in the dumper! The officer can say whatever he wants and you HAVE to take it. He doesnt even have to know his arsehole from his elbow. And get this... Even if you do go and get ur vehical VI'd AND PASSED, as soon as u roll out the VI'ing shops door, you can be issued another VI!

ITS ALL BS, and the vehicals that truely shouldnt be on the road rarely ever get sighted.

ARGH... pencil pushing burracadic (sp?) propaganda! F*** it ticks me right off!

Seriously,, all my years of looking at Vehicles and then sending them to a VI guy brakes need to be measured to spec, front end tight, no rust holes in the frame, and as long as you can walk past the vehicle and not snag on any rusty peaces of metal sticking out,, you should be fine I mean,, My runner Past and I used to cans of expand o foam to fill wholes,, My Vi Guy didn't care,,

As the Truck is Mechanicly sound IE Safety idtems steering brakes etc it should be good to go,, for most inspection anyway

I am a MV inspector, I have the regulations... As long as its safe that's all that matters... If you daily drive your rig then it should meet the safety standards, if you drive your rig to and from the bush, then thats another ball game.

does a front line lock count as an e-brake? Or does it have to be cable/mechanical?

does a front line lock count as an e-brake? Or does it have to be cable/mechanical?

my guess would be cable or mechanical because the point of having an emergency brake is so you can stop if your regualr brakes fail. if a line goes and theres no fluid being pushed around, how will your line lock work?

kootenaycat
01-30-2007, 05:43 PM
Can't recall if there's anything about linelock in the regs, but if you have modified the hydraulic system, and it can easily be seen by an inspector, they may fail it. Just make sure it's out of sight.

It can't be used for an emergency brake.

cruizer
01-30-2007, 09:44 PM
line lock is apart of you primary braking circuit and an e-brake is secondary...so no

You guys have it easy over here, back in Sydney where i came from we need an inspection every year, 35" tyres on 10" rims are the biggest allowed, and the car must be passed just to drive it on the road by an automotive engineer if its been modified in any way, even sports seats!, and cops can defect a car on the spot any time and not let you drive it away, happens a lot too! Ive only been here little while and cant wait to build a truck!

Rob at Car Craft Automotive in Winfield is the only place I take my vehicles to.
Hes done inspections on two of my cars so far and he is absolutely professional about his work.
He always checks the brakes, lights, signals, gives the interior and engine bay a quick once over, and goes through the undercairrage to make sure that the frame is all good.
would definetely reccomend him to anyone needing a VI:rockhorns:

I am an "V.I. guy" also, Most of the rigs in Ridge are for the most part "safe".
Mud flaps, wheel bearings, steering and lights will keep you from being a random target.

Still mandatory on '87 and newer even out of the lower mainland. Why is that a safety item I'll never know. [16] The good thing is you can gut it and I would still pass it on a VI. :D

Thats good to know, as I have done that with mine. Was wondering if I would somehow get snagged for that.

What's a t-case brake? You mean driveshaft brake? What is it - bigger then a 1 ton chassis? Only seen them on motorhomes and bigger.

As for the tranny inspection cover, I wouldn't care. Can't see how that is going to effect the safety of the vehicle. Though I'm sure there's a few inspectors out there who would try to pick it apart.

And they wonder why they are called PIGS and are given no or little respect. The cops here in Vancouver are the worst I have ever had to deal with.
What a horrible job they must have... get under paid to be the cities BITCH! YAY that sounds like fun.

For all you respectful cops out there... sorry, but the rest of the sour, hating, power tripping pigs have made it this way for you.

Vi's are very simple Is is safe for the road.
Im an inspector as well and generally you can interpet the regulations in many way and there are all kinds of sub text regarding modifications althought the fines facing inspectors and the shops they work out of are enough to keep It in line,(I think) well I don't want to get caught passing something that is not legit.

Whats the story on the "Modified suspension greater than 4"" though?

whats the restrition for tires sticking out on the sides

From the motor vehicle act regulations:

Mudguards
7.06 Every motor vehicle, trailer and semitrailer not constructed so that the spray and splash of water and mud to the rear of the vehicle is minimized shall be equipped with mudguards and, if necessary, mud flaps.

There is nothing stating anywhere about the coverage of the flares although I've heard cops like to say the tires have to be completely covered but I'd like to see where they get their info from. The way I read it is "the spray and splash of water and mud to the rear of the vehicle is minimized". So if my tires are sticking out say 2" and my flares are covering 6", then I have "minimized" the splash of water and mud. As far as mud flaps go it's a grey area... Mudflaps fall under the category Mudgaurds. The inspection guys say you need them because it's on their list of items to check however if you read the act, it states "and, if necessary, mud flaps." (to minimize the spray and splash of water and mud.)... So the statement "if necessary" leaves a question and is not "mandatory".
edit: just came across the "grey area" that causes some confusion:
19.03 (1) No person shall drive or operate on a highway

(a) a vehicle equipped with solid tires, the thickness of which between the rim of the wheel and the surface of the highway is less than 32 mm, or
(b) a vehicle having wheels, tires or tracks constructed or equipped with projecting spikes, cleats, ribs, clamps, flanges, lugs or other attachments or projections, which extend beyond the tread or traction surface of the wheel,

So if your lugs are in contact with the road then you're ok on this point.
Any other opinions on how this law reads?

I've auctially gotten away
With telling the cop that my truck only had a 4" lift, and he asked me
What size tires were on it, I told him 34" lol, when there auctially 36", told him I was running narrow rims so they look taller and he bought it lol

Hey there, I'm Ariel I live in Abbotsford too and just got served an inspection order on my 91 ranger for a busted park brake....I need to fix the park brake which is fine but don't want to get caught out on a million things if possible on such an old truck so I was wondering if you's be interested in helping me out....other than the park brake the truck drives fine

Happypants
12-10-2013, 10:06 PM
Did u get a notice and order to fix your park brake? Or did you get a box 2 vehicle inspection? If you got a notice & order to fix your park brake, then fix the park brake, and Goto the cop shop and show the cop that you fixed it and they will sign off on it,

But if u got a box 2 VI, then take your truck in and find out if u pass or not lol, basically the main thing, mudflaps, flairs that cover your WHOLE tire, and basically anything that's loose (ujoints,tie rods,balljoints) shit like that, replace them before u go for the VI, and if ur truck is lifted, don't tell them it's taller tha. A 4" lift, lol, and hopefully your winshield isn't cracked, if it is, u will need a new one, (obviously)

Ariel
12-11-2013, 02:19 PM
Sadly it's an inspection order, I've just had the truck checked by my mechanic and there's a few other things I need to fix too which is no problem, u joint, brake rotor ect the real thing I guess I was hoping to find out is does anyone know of a good place in Abbotsford to get an inspection? I'm just hoping to find someone who isn't too harsh on the inspection as long as all my safety features are working, It's a pretty old truck and by the looks of the list they could probably find a million stupid things to make me fix if they looked hard enough.
