All technicians are required to obtain the vehicle inspection manual that relates to the type of inspections they are completing. Each inspection manual outlines the pass/fail criteria for vehicle inspections. Inspection facilities and technicians must be able to produce a copy of the appropriate vehicle inspection manual at the request of a Vehicle Safety Investigator or the Registrar. Electronic copies of the inspection manuals are allowed as long as the inspection technician has the ability to access it during the inspection. Failure to inspect a vehicle according the appropriate vehicle inspection manual can result in progressive discipline.
