The Periodic Mandatory Vehicle Inspection Regulation 76/94 requires that prior to operating a commercial vehicle on a highway, the vehicle must pass an inspection at a certified inspection station according to the regulations and where an inspection certificate and decal evidencing compliance has been issued.
Effective September 1, 2015, Manitoba adopts by reference National Safety Code Standard 11, Part B, Periodic Commercial Motor Vehicle Inspections (with certain parts of the introductory material excluded from the adoption; consult Manitoba’s regulation for more details). If a vehicle meets the standards prior to Manitoba’s adoption of the standard, but not the newest standard, the vehicle will still pass the inspection. The mechanic will advise the carrier what needs to be done to the vehicle so that it will meet the requirements of the new standard at the time of the vehicle’s next inspection. This transition period is in effect until August 31, 2016.
The following vehicle classes require inspection:
- Trucks, including truck-tractors, that have a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 4,500 kilograms or more;
- Public service vehicle buses;
- Regulated passenger vehicles;
- Trailers, including semitrailers, having a GVWR of 4,500 kilograms or more; and
- Trailer converter dollies with a GVWR of 4,500 kilograms or more.
The Periodic Mandatory Vehicle Inspection Regulation does not apply to:
- Farm trailers;
- Trucks registered under the farm truck category (that is not a truck-tractor);
- Truck-tractor registered under the farm truck category that has a GVWR less than 21,952 kilograms;
- Regulated passenger vehicles (non-PSV) that is owned by an individual and used for personal use;
- New vehicles in transit from one manufacturer to another or from the manufacturer to a distributor/dealer;
- Vehicles restricted by the registration to roads in an adjoining remote community;
- Antique vehicles; and
- Vehicles owned or operated for public transportation by the City of Winnipeg or Brandon.
A non-Manitoba-plated vehicle would be in compliance if a certificate or decal has been issued to the vehicle indicating it has passed a substantially similar inspection program in that other jurisdiction.
Vehicles requiring inspection will be issued an inspection certificate and an inspection decal. The inspection decal must be affixed to the vehicle for which it was issued as follows:
- For a truck-tractor or other truck, placed on the lower left-hand corner of the windshield or in a conspicuous position on the left-hand side of the cab;
- For a semitrailer, other trailer, or converter dolly, on the left-hand side as close as possible to the vehicle’s front; or
- For a passenger vehicle, on the lower right-hand side of the windshield, on a fixed side window as close as possible to the right front of the vehicle, or in a conspicuous place on the right side of the vehicle’s body close to the front of the body.
Public service vehicles buses or regulated passenger vehicle (non-PSV) that is a school bus or a rental vehicle must undergo six-month inspections (begins on the day an inspection certificate and decal is issued and ends on the day six months after the last day of the month in which the certificate and decal were issued).
All other vehicles require 12-month inspections (begins on the day an inspection certificate and decal is issued and ends on the day 12 months after the last day of the month in which the certificate and decal were issued).
Although the driver is not required to carry a copy of the inspection certificate for inspection purposes in Manitoba, it is suggested that they do so for inspections in other jurisdictions where the certificate is required to be carried.
