a quick question about VI's

can you get a VI for a vehicle thats under temporary insurance? last summer i insured my car a handfull of times to move it from shop to shop and on 2 ocations i was driving with no front bumper and on another ocation i was driving with my rear fenders cut out and no front bumper or right front fender. luckilly i never ran into any police or problems but can i be issued a VI for something like this or does a vehicle have to be registered with proper plates for the vehicle to fall into the same category of rules. i ask because you can just insure a car under temp insurance and never get the car air cared. it's sorta the same thing?

I think it's possible to be issued a VI cause your car can be deemed as unsafe. MAYBE though

Yes, a VI can be issued. We record everything about the vehicle, more specifically the VIN, onto the Notice and Order ticket. The Inspection Order will be attached to the VIN and when you try to re-insure the vehicle, it will show up.

For a vehicle to be insured (and driven) in BC, it must meet all the safety requirements in the MVA/MVAR whether its got annual or temporary insurance.

I would like to think that any autoplan agent would notice that an Inspection Order had been issued and not issue insurance without the vehicle being inspected... But I've come across vehicles where the agent renewed anyways.

If a police officer pulls you over and checks the VIN, which I always do with TOPs, it would show up and you'd get a $598 ticket for failing to comply with a Notice and Order (if it hadn't been complied with in the allotted amount of time) and an immediate tow (again, if the N&O hadn't been complied with).

Now along the same lines as a VI while on temp insurance, can a car get a VI while on Repairer plates? Reason I ask is we are new to the whole repair plate thing and use it to test drive and transport drivable vehicles for servicing diagnosing etc.

Nope. You're in for trouble if you are caught driving the vehicle after the VI says you cannot.

A repairman's plate does not give you carte-blanche to drive unsafe vehicles on the street. 'Drivable' does not mean it's safe or legal to drive on the street. Call a tow truck if you have to transport a car that's not safe or mvar compliant. An R-plate is meant for test driving vehicles that have small problems that you are trying to diagnose or confirm that you've fixed, like a noisy bearing or squeaky brakes or clunking tranny. You're not supposed to use it to drive a car with no body panels to the body shop across town.
