Out of Province Inspection

Out of Province Vehicle Inpections

Most vehicles that have been registered in another province must complete an Out of Province inspection (OOP) before they can be registered and driven in Alberta. This one-time inspection must be completed within three months of the vehicle entering the province and can take anywhere from 2 to 3 hours to complete.

Some vehicles are exempt form on Out of Province inspection if they fall within these conditions outlined in the following PDF guidelines issued from the Alberta Govt "Registering an Out of Province Vehicle In Alberta".

Inspection guidelines:

To start the inspection process you will require a "request for Out of Province (OOP) inspection form" from and Alberta Registry Agent and valid plates and insurance on your vehicle.

As per Alberta’s Vehicle Inspection regulations, we are required to inspect nearly all vehicle components including electrical systems, glass, wipers and defrosters, steering, lights, brakes, engine controls, fuel and exhaust systems, powertrain, driveline, suspension, wiring and lights, tires, body condition, etc. We are also required to make sure that the vehicle’s structural integrity is not compromised.

If your vehicle passes the inspection, our facility will issue Out of Province Vehicle Inspection Certificate. Inspection certificates are valid for 14 days and vehicles must be registered in Alberta before the expiry date. Should the vehicle owner fail to register the vehicle within 14 days, a full OOP Vehicle Inspection will be required again.

If the vehicle fails the inspection, because of some defects or repairs that are required to meet the Alberta Transportation standards, you will need to get the vehicle repaired and a re-inspection done within 10 days of the date of inspection. Vehicles repaired and presented for re-inspection within these 10 days will be subject to verification of required repairs only at a licensed Vehicle Inspection Facility. If you are not able to return for a re-inspection within 10 days of the initial date of inspection, a full OOP Vehicle Inspection will be required again.
