Insurance inspections are simply a specific checklist of vehicle components to ensure the mechanical condition meets the minimum level of what the insurance industry has deemed as "acceptable" for a vehicle to be considered "road worthy".
All AMVIC-licensed businesses must provide customers with a completed mechanical fitness assessment form before entering into a sales agreement/purchase contract for any used vehicle.
This standardized form ensures a uniform process for assessing all used vehicles.
Typically commercial vehicles see the road every business day for countless miles.
This high milage use demands regular service and inspections to maximize it's service life and safety to the driver, and everyone else on the road.
Commercial inspections focus on the current mechanical state and estimated time before service on core mechanical systems will be required.
The Alberta government requires an annual inspection on all commercial vehicles.
Commercial vehicles inspections also includes school buses and taxi inspections.
Vehicles declared salvage by an insurance company must undergo an inspection by a licensed inspection technician. A salvage vehicle that has passed an inspection is given a "rebuilt" rating on the vehicle registration form, which indicates it has been repaired, can be re-registered and driven on Alberta’s roads.
The Salvage vehicle inspection requires that rebuilt vehicles be restored to Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) or Inter-industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair (I-CAR) specifications. The inspection normally takes four hours to perform. It includes all aspects of the Out Of Province vehicle inspection, as well as the structural integrity inspection component.
