You may require a vehicle inspection for many reasons: you’re purchasing a
car, you want to ensure your vehicle is safe, or because it’s a provincial
requirement. At Pneus Gagnier we can help you with your vehicle
Types of Vehicle Inspections
Out of Province Vehicle Inspection
– An out of province vehicle inspection is required when you purchase a
vehicle from a different province than you reside in. An out of
province vehicle inspection will ensure that your vehicle meets the
safety and equipment standards of the province where you live. We will
check every component of your vehicle to ensure that it meets all
provincial safety standards. This process will take approximately 2
hours to complete. We will advise you of any repairs that will need to
be completed on the vehicle and those repairs often need to be
completed within 10 days of the inspection in order to receive your
vehicle registration or else the inspection must be completed again.
Pre-purchase Vehicle Inspection
– If you’re considering purchasing a used vehicle, we recommend getting
a vehicle inspection to confirm that there are no underlying issues
with it. We want to help ensure that your money is invested into a good
quality vehicle that won’t be dangerous to you and your passengers and
getting a pre-purchase vehicle inspection is the best way to verify
Commercial Vehicle Inspection
- Commercial vehicles must undergo an annual vehicle inspection; this
includes buses, trucks, light trucks, truck-tractors, semi-trailers,
and trailers. We can provide a quick and thorough inspection of your
commercial vehicle to get you back on the road as soon as possible.
– If you are purchasing a vehicle within your province that is 12 years
old or older, you will often require a vehicle inspection in order for
the car to be insured. Our technicians will perform this type of
inspection to ensure that the vehicle is safe for you to drive.
12-point Vehicle Inspection
– We recommend getting a 12-point vehicle inspection once every 2 years
to verify that all aspects of your vehicle are working correctly (some
provinces have a mandatory requirement for annual vehicle inspections).
During a 12-point inspection, we will check the following components:
Fluid levels, Tires and tread wear, Wheel balance and alignment, Wiper
blades, Interior and exterior lights, Belts and hoses, Shocks and
struts, Brakes, Battery, Cabin filter.
We will inspect all these components of your vehicle to ensure that none of
them have any issues and are working correctly.

problems. To have automotive difficulties is a hassle and puts your safety
