The out of province inspection process is required to get registration for your vehicle whenever you move into Alberta from outside the province. The inspection focuses on the safety and mechanical structure of your vehicle in relation to the required guidelines as published by the Province of Alberta.

An out of province inspection must be performed at a registered Licensed Inspection Facility and performed by a Certified Licensed Technician. Alberta Auto Sales & Repairs qualifies and has the experience and required Licensed Technicians.

Also required is to access whether the vehicle lives up to the standards of the original manufacturer. If the structural integrity of your vehicle has been compromised due to collisions etc.

If there are structural items that fail to meet the out of Province inspection standards, they must be repaired within 10 days of the failure notice. If required, we can also provide an estimate for the repairs.
