Good News Update July 21, 2017 (Red Text)

.

If you are reading this page it is a safe bet that you are interested in the hot rod and/or kit car hobby in Canada.

.

In July of 2016, The Ontario Govt enacted new Provincial Dept. of Transport  Regulations that effectively eliminate any possibility of licensing a new build kit car or other home built vehicle within the province of Ontario. See below for details.

.

This new regulation, as written,  makes it impossible to license any vehicle that was not manufactured by a licensed manufacturer along the lines of Ford, Chev, Chrysler etc, etc. etc. This is so because the Ontario  Passenger / Light-Duty Vehicle Inspection Standard  Manual  states as follows

 .

Electronic Stability Control (ESC) required on all vehicles manufactured after August 2011″   (sect.3, para.13, pg.41)

.

You can view the Full Document HERENote that while the document has a date of 2015, it is in fact the currently in force document as evidenced by the link on THIS PAGE  as linked to in this sentence on the home Page “The inspection standards required for vehicles that need safety standards certificates are changing on July 1, 2016. Learn more about the new inspection standards.(See Section 3 Brakes Last Bullet point)

.

UPDATE – July 21, 2017 – I received an E-mail from Russ M. who has been contacted by the Ontario MTO in response to his inquiry regarding registering and licensing Kit cars.  The E-mail from Russ stated in Part as follows.

.

Last night, I received a call from a vehicle safety engineer (R. Monster) at the Ministry of Transport in Ontario in response to my query on this issue. He stated that there will be new legislation coming this fall (Sept-Oct 2017) that will clarify this issue with regards to kit cars. (i.e. ESC not required.) He was quick to point out that there are many other safety items that are still needed!”

.

This was further confirmed by an Ontario Hot Rod builder who has also been in touch with the MTO and, I believe, posted words to that affect on the FFR Forum.

.

This is indeed good news as it would appear that by this fall Ontario Builders can anticipate that inspection stations will have a clear understanding of how to proceed with a kit car (or other home built vehicle) safety inspection.
