Ontario Motor Vehicle Inspection Station
New Age Automotive is a government-approved Ontario Motor Vehicle Inspection Station (MVIS), and can complete the Safety Standard Certificate (SSC). The inspection covers the minimum safety requirements for vehicles in the province of Ontario.
Safety Standards Certificate
To register a vehicle as fit, you must have a safety standards certificate. A certificate that is issued outside Ontario is not acceptable. An authorized mechanic at a government approved Motor Vehicle Inspection Station inspects the vehicle, for a fee, and issues a signed certificate if the vehicle passes inspection. The certificate is valid for 36 days from the date of the inspection. The certificate is not a warranty or guarantee on the general condition of the vehicle.
You will be asked to show this certificate when you:
• Register a rebuilt motor vehicle
• Transfer a used motor vehicle to a new owner as fit
• Register a motor vehicle as fit in Ontario that was previously registered in another province or country
• Change the status of a vehicle from unfit to fit
Note: A Safety standards certificate is not required when registering a used motorized snow vehicle, off-road vehicle, motor assisted bicycle (moped), or trailer as fit.
