CVIP - Commercial Vehicle Inspection Program
The purpose of the mandatory Commercial Vehicle Inspection Program (CVIP) in Edmonton and other parts of Canada is to establish, maintain and enhance vehcile inspection criteria for trucks, trailers, and buses. It clearly defines vehcile inspection criteria and procedures to ensure the safety of all commercial vehicles that travel Canadian highways.
Heavy duty truck driver owners of vehicles that pass inspection receive a certificate as well as a decal to place on their vehicles. CVIP Inspections are not meant to replace ongoing preventive maintenance, but do set the standard for vehicle maintenance programs.
No regulated commercial vehicle can be operated on a highway unless it has a valid inspection certificate. This certificate is issued under the Commercial Vehicle Inspection Program (CVIP). This program applies to:
- Commercial vehicles that are registered for a weight of 11,794 kilograms or more;
- A combination of vehicles with a combined registered weight of 11,794 kilograms ormore;
- Commercial vehicles with a manufacturer’s seating capacity originally designed for 11 or more persons, including the driver;
- Any vehicles being towed by an NSC vehicle;
- A vehicle operating under the authority of an Operating Authority Certificate.
Commercial passenger vehicles such as school buses, motor coaches and vans must be inspected once every 6 months. Commercial trucks and trailers must be inspected once every 12 months. CVIP Inspections may only be conducted by a technician and at a facility that has been certified by the Government of Alberta.
