Vehicle Registration Requirements
British Columbia does not have vehicle
registration reciprocity with other
jurisdictions for charter buses 11,794
kg and over (including other provinces
of Canada). Carriers with buses
11,794 kg and over must be registered
with IRP or obtain non-resident
commercial vehicle permits (issued as
a single trip or quarterly permits).
Buses under 11,794 kg from another
Canadian province may operate for up
to 90 days intra-jurisdictionally in a year
and may operate for inter-provincial
operations without time limitations
under the provisions of the Canadian
Agreement on Vehicle Registration
(CAVR).
Permits can be obtained in advance
by contacting the Provincial Permit
Centre Vehicle Permit Line or at any
point of entry in British Columbia
(inspection stations). Permits for
buses 11,794 kg and over are limited
to inter-jurisdictional operation.
For non-IRP carriers, non-resident
permit fees are based on GVW
(8% of annual licence fee for a single
trip and 25% for a quarterly permit);
for example, a permit fee of CAN$88
single trip ($265 for quarterly permit)
for coaches with GVW up to 23,000
kg and an insurance premium of
CAN$66 for single trip ($660 for
quarterly permit) are added if carrier
does not have Financial Responsibility
(Insurance) information on file
with ICBC.

CAN$1 million
Carriers of any weight must obtain
Financial Responsibility number
issued by the Insurance Corporation of
British Columbia (ICBC) prior to entry
or obtain insurance in conjunction
with a non-resident permit. Carrier's
insurance company must file with
ICBC who will issue a Financial
Responsibility number.
Application fee is CAN$30
