Motor Vehicle Inspection - Report Builder

Ontario's new motor vehicle inspection standards are changing on July 1 2016. Passenger Car and Light duty vehicles require an inspection report to be provided with the vehicle and an additional copy to be retained at the inspection station. Commercial vehicles inspected to the 11B standard have required this type of report already.

The MVI program stores all the required inspection criteria, rejection criteria and references to the regulation documents in one easy to use application for both the new light duty standard and the 11B national standard.

Items are selected from the lists to show failed, passed or repaired items. A note field is provided to detail the result or additional information.

Some items are required to be reported on the inspection report regardless of whether they pass or fail. These include brake pad thicknesses, rotor and drum specifications, tell-tale lights etc. MVI provides quick entry fields for this criteria so no items are missed on your documentation.

The Inspection Report can be printed out in a consistent professional manor, compiling all the required information.

Note: MVI is a tool to aid in meeting the reporting standards. Mechanics must have full knowledge of the applicable standards and inspect to the requirements of the actual documents. more
