Safety Inspection Services at Albion Auto Sales & Service

Vehicle safety inspection requirements in Ontario are outlined and enforced by Ministry of Transportation (MTO). 

This is a quote from the Provincial website covering the topic "A safety standards certificate confirms that your vehicle met the minimum safety standards on the date the certificate was issued. It is not a warranty or guarantee of the vehicle’s condition."

of which the full topic can be found at this link Safety Inspection Ontario .


Safety Standards Certificate

A safety standards certificate being issued means that your vehicle meets the minimum safety standards at the time of inspection. You can not put a licence plate on a vehicle in Ontario without one. You can buy and register a vehicle without a safety standards certificate, but can not put plates on the vehicle without having the Safety Inspection inspected and certificate issued.

Annual and Semi-Annual Safety Inspections

Trucks, trailers and converter dollies, alone or in combination, with a total gross weight, registered gross weight or manufacturer's gross vehicle weight rating of more than 4,500 kg, require an annual inspection

Buses, school-purposes vehicles used for transporting six or more persons, and accessible vehicles that require two inspections per year have different criteria. A bus with a manufacturer's gross vehicle weight rating of 4500 kg or less and used for personal use is exempt from the annual and semi-annual inspection requirement.

If a vehicle meets all the requirements of an annual or semi-annual inspection, a sticker is applied to the vehicle or trailer, and a certificate and report are issued by the inspecting station.
