I'm amazed they don't do this already.

I got a renewal notice yesterday that said if I don't renew my insurance by April 22, 2015 that I would need to Aircare again.

that made me a little nervous..... although it could very well be a leftover from the old renewal template.

I can see then doing the Mandatory Safety inspections. this way they can have it applying to all cars in BC, unlike Aircare which just applys to people that insurance in the lower Mainland, this will bring in much much more revenue. :-)

If safety inspections come in there will be a hell of a lot less "hellaflush" "stanced" and "lifted" vehicles on the roads.

There are already commercial vehicle inspections out there however I don't think its something they have to take there vehicles to, only get caught by.

Since towing capacity is factored into the registered GVW, one should be able to lower it under 5001 and say they're not towing trailers any longer.

I forgot what the min. GVW is but my single axle flatdeck has to get inspected annually and my tandem goes in every 6 months - both 5T. The one good thing about gov't run, commercial safety inspection facilities is that at least it cuts out the shady shops that pass unsafe trucks.

There used to be annual safety inspections for cars in the early 80's but they scrapped it after less than 5 years.

Further confirmation that AirCare is toast by Dec.31st. Got a call at the office yesterday from AirCare stating that they would buy back all coupons that were still in circulation for full face value. Score!! We had about 6 or so lying around that gets added to the beer fund!

Really hoping they don't implement annual safety inspections for all. There would be riots! The commercial stuff sounds reasonable as there have been so many cases of unsafe commercial vehicles being operated on public roads. Some causing major accidents.

This was taken from aircare.ca

"If the program is ending do I still have to fix my car?
repairprogram/policytop
Yes. All vehicles that fail an AirCare inspection must be repaired to comply with AirCare emissions standards. Vehicle owners have the option of performing the repairs themselves, having repairs performed by a non-certified repair technician or by one of the AirCare Certified Repair Centres. As long as the vehicle passes re-inspection, it doesn’t matter who did the repairs."

Does it mean if my car did not pass air care before, I still cannot just get insurance next year?

I'm a little sad that one of the very few good things about living up here is now negated by Aircare going away.

Aircare will be gone by Dec 31, 2015 as per their procedures, unless anything changes.

Any vehicle insurance renewal is effective Jan. 1, 2015 will not require an aircare. If the aircare already expired on the vehicle, you will need a pass aircare before you can renew or issue new plates on it (if effective date is before Dec. 31, 2014).

You can increase or decrease the gvw on your type 2 commercial vehicle (pickup/crewcab trucks/delivery trucks/vans and etc..). The minimum gvw you can lower it down to 1.5 x the net weight of your vehicle. You can always increase the gvw, however depending on the use of the vehicle and the gvw, there are other things to consider: National safety code (NSC) and Commercial vehicle inspection (CVIP if over 8200 kg gvw).

It's for dealerships so the lot guy doesn't have to carry cash or debit with him. I suppose voucher would have been a more appropriate term. We would buy like 20 at a time but then moved away from selling older vehicles that required AirCare so a bunch of them just sat around doing nothing.

I remember going with my grandfather to an inspection station where the Burnaby AirCare station is now... that would have been in the mid-70s. I recall his car having a ton of inspection stickers on the windshield, too.

I remember my dad dealing with it through the dealership he worked at in the early 80's. Perhaps it was around for longer than I originally thought.

Aircare is done by dec 31. Insuring it in January will not require aircare, unless they pull something new out of their butts in the next 2 months.
