What is a safety inspection, and how can I get one in Regina?
Well, Roadway Auto Service got you covered!
But what is safety inspection?
Some passenger vehicles brought into Saskatchewan from out of province and some total loss vehicles are structurally and mechanically unfit. Before these vehicles can be registered in Saskatchewan, they need to pass one or both inspections, depending on the condition of the vehicle. A Mechanical safety inspection is to determine if the vehicle is mechanically safe to drive, and a Body Integrity Inspection is to determine if the vehicle is structurally safe to drive.
