Safety Inspection / Out of Province Inspection
What is a safety inspection, and how can I get one in Regina?
Capital Ford, your one-stop shop for new and used vehicles, is also your safety headquarters. We are certified to perform complete safety inspections and our customer service is second to none.
But what is a safety inspection?
There are two types of safety inspections. A Mechanical Safety Inspection determines whether or not a vehicle is mechanically safe to drive, and a Body Integrity Inspection determines whether or not a vehicle is structurally safe to drive.
Some passenger vehicles brought into Saskatchewan from out of province and some total loss vehicles are structurally and mechanically unfit for the road. Before these vehicles can be registered in Saskatchewan, they need to pass one or both inspections, depending on the condition of the vehicle. Here at Capital Ford, we perform both of these inspections to the highest standards. We will check your vehicle from top to bottom, inside and out, to ensure that it meets SGI’s requirements. We will check everything from your interior lights and airbags, to your alternator and battery.
