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.

British Columbia

Charter/tour coaches operated from
any provincial boundary to any point in
British Columbia (BC) when engaged
in an extra-provincial undertaking
require an Extra-Provincial Temporary
Operating (EXPRO) Permit for a single
round trip (to a maximum duration of
7 consecutive days) OR for a single
one way trip (to a maximum duration
of 7 days) provided passengers
brought into the province are dropped
off in BC. Pick up of new passengers
in BC is not allowed. The permit fee is
$25 for each vehicle.
EXPRO Permits are restricted to
commercial passenger carriers
that do not have a BC passenger
transportation license, and hold
a valid safety certificate with a
satisfactory rating, an extra-provincial
or inter-state operating authority and
proper commercial passenger vehicle
insurance coverage all issued from
their home jurisdiction.
