Inspection station applications
A garage, licenced by the Province of Alberta (and in good standing) to operate in Calgary, may apply to conduct inspections on vehicles affiliated with Calgary’s taxi, limousine, or ride-share industry.
The garage and mechanic must hold a valid certificate issued by Vehicle For Hire office to conduct livery inspections. There is no limit to the number of mechanic certificates affiliated with the inspection station. Download the Livery Transport Bylaw 20M2021 for information and fees.
All vehicles entering the vehicle for hire industry require an inspection and a new inspection is required yearly. The inspection requirements are listed within the Livery Transport Bylaw 20M2021 – Enhanced Livery Vehicle Inspection Standards (ELVIS).
An application for a Livery Inspection Station Certificate and a Mechanic Certificate are required and upon approval the licence is issued with an expiry date of December 31 (of current year).
All applications must be made in-person at Vehicle For Hire office. All requirements are listed on the application form.
Once you have completed the above application forms please drop off all information at the Vehicle for Hire office.
Vehicle For Hire office provides all certified inspection stations and certified mechanics with the renewal packages prior to December’s renewal period. The licence renewal period is the month of December each year.
